Lyra Atlas SL Moving Coil Phono Cartridge

PLEASE NOTE WE CAN ONLY SEND LYRA CARTRIDGES TO UK and IRELAND addresses

The Lyra Atlas SL is a special version of the standard Atlas, but with a single layer (hence, the “SL” designation) of coils, resulting in lower mass.

Lyra describes the SL series as follows:

For expert users with very high-gain, extra low noise phono stages, or alternatively a step-up transformer designed for phono cartridges of 2 – 3 ohms or less… [It] may provide extra pure and pristine sound from an audio system that is optimised for a low-impedance, low-output cartridge. However, this may be accompanied with a lesser level of energy and power.

If weight of sound and dynamics are your priorities, go for the non-SL version. But if high resolution and speed are what you’re seeking, and you’ve got a suitable phono stage or step-up transformer, the SL version may be ideal.

 

 

Specifications

Type
Medium weight, medium compliance, low-impedance, low-output moving coil cartridge
Stylus
Lyra-designed long-footprint variable-radius line-contact nude diamond (3um x 70um profile, block dimensions 0.08 x 0.12 x 0.5mm), slot-mounted
Cantilever
Diamond-coated solid boron rod with short one-point wire suspension, directly mounted into cartridge body via high-pressure knife-edge system
Coils
2-layer deep, 6 N high-purity copper, chemically-purified high purity iron X-shaped former, 1.52 Ohms internal impedance, 1.9μH inductance
Output
0.25 mV@5 cm/sec
Frequency range
10 Hz-50 kHz
Channel separation
35 dB or better at 1 kHz
Compliance
Approx 12 X10 cm/dyne at 100 Hz
Vertical tracking angle
20 degrees
Cartridge body
One-piece machining from solid titanium billet, with reduced-surface higher-pressure headshell contact area, predominately non-parallel and asymmetrical shaping, phase-interference resonance-controlling mechanism, and body threaded directly for mounting screws
Distance from mounting holes to stylus tip
9.52 mm
Cartridge weight (without stylus cover)
11.6 g
Recommended tracking force
1.65 ~ 1.78g (1.72g recommended)
Recommended load directly into MC phono input
Determine by listening
Recommended load via step-up transformer
Step-up transformer designed for 2 - 3 Ohms cartridge impedance; the transformer output must be connected to standard 47 kohm MM-level RIAA input, preferably via short, low-capacitance cable
