Exquisitely crafted with onyx stone, the Apollo MC Cartridge uses some of the best parts in the world. Each component in thsi cartridge is fine-tuned and tweaked to deliver a performance worthy of bearing the TriangleART logo. Some propriety design changes have been made to yield a much improved sound quality. Each cartridge is assembled taking precious time and utmost care.
A natural, high-quality diamond (VVS 1 grade or higher) is used in the design to control the resonance along with fine copper wiring and a gold plated pin. As with the TriangleArt Zeus cartridge, a firm belief in combining speed and details without sacrificing musicality is placed into the product. This philosophy is inherited in the Apollo but has gone far beyond to incorporate even more details, more transparency, more finesse, more air, and more musicality. With Apollo, music is crystal clear, without fogginess, without haziness. Each note is sharp, crisp, and clean as well as full of body and authority. Louis Armstrong's raspy voice can be fully appreciated, and distinguishing the cedar from rosewood from sprice in the bodies of acoustic guitars can be done with ease.
The stone body Apollo is the next achievement on TriangleArt's long list of achievements so please listen and audition it - you will be in analog heaven once you savour the sound of this gorgeously built cartridge.
