Musically natural cartridges"

Transfiguration Spirit mk3

Not cold & analytical just accurate & natural instrumental timbres.

Design concept:

Utilising a double ring magnet for a moving coil cartridge has enabled five unique design improvement:

* Just two coils within double ring magnets.

* No yokes.

* No magnetic irregularities.

* Coils at the crux of the magnetic focus.

* Intimate coil/magnet coupling.

Technical details:

1. Twin coils on the cantilever fulcrum.

Minimimises dynamic mass and mechanical impedance, enabling instant, accurate reaction to every groove detail, including the ability to handle massive transients without overshoot or break-up.

2. Push pull damping.

A special compound has been meticulously designed and fabricated to provide total stylus/coil alignment and control. Its non-sensitivity to temperature change keeps the damoing coefficient stable and improves tracing accuracy.

3. Special alloy core for coil assembly.

Increases sensitivity by 20dB, improves signal to noise ratio eliminating a usual source of distortion.

4. Low mass tip.

Ogura PA (3 x 30uM) tip shares many of the advantages of the flagship MC cartridge "The Temper V". Its function is to reproduce the character of the original recorded sound - not add or subtract its own deficiencies.

5. Anti resonance cartridge body.

The solid cartridge body utilises both shape and material to create a totally inert environment for the electromagnetic element. These are more effectively insulated from the arm, turntable and tracing noises, further reducing any tonal colouration of the music and lessening the intrusion of distracting mechanical noises.
