How to Choose a Cartridge

The Paula Fixed Coil Cartridge

Where do I start?

Maybe it's best to draw an analogy that is easy to relate to. Certain critical parts of the design of a race car will allow it to stay on the track - to allow the driver to not fly off the road - mainly, the tires, and suspension.  THAT is the cartridge in your analog system. It is KEY.

The engine and transmission - that's the preamp, amplifier, turntable and speakers. Power, and consistency, smoothness (lack of distortion). But none of them will help you stay on the road.

They Said What?

"We listened to some music. The sound was not prickly or thorny at all. It was clean, clear, and immediate—bold and well-controlled—with vibrant colors and good senses of rhythm, touch, and scale."

- Stephen Mejias, Stereophile
