Cartridge Man The MusicMaker Classic LE Phono Cartridge
The Music Maker Classic Limited Edition is a refinement on the Music Maker Classic, designed to offer giant beating high end performance that exceeds the Classic, and still at an affordable upgrade price. It still uses pure silver hand wound conductors, but uses substantially different materials for both the cantilever and the stylus, as well as changes to the styli cutting angle,
Couple all of these with the improvement the standard classic brought over the Music Maker MkIII, Leonard Gregory has managed to raise the performance bar still higher.
As a moving Iron Cartridge it has none of the draw backs of low output moving coils, and yet offers the listener the chance to experience music in a truly sublime way. Reviewers the world over and early customers announced this cartridge one of the best ever made.
The Music Maker Classic Limited Edition has a solid Sapphire cantilever, which gives it an incredible stiffness and rigidity not found on other cartridges anyway near this price point. The fitted diamond stylus is a fraction of the size of the ones found on the Classic and the Music Maker Mk III. Allowing the stylus to track deeper in the grove, giving in our tests a much quieter surface noise during playback of the recording.
A clear winner, we ask all buyers of serious cartridges to add to their shortlist for an upgrade. It is really that good.
