Van den Hul The Canary MC Moving Coil Cartridge

This magnificent little bird sings with heart and soul!

With The CANARY we have added new sublime plumage to our famed phono cartridge program. The CANARY is a top quality moving coil phono cartridge, custom handbuilt by A.J. van den Hul. It features a very healthy 0.55 mV output, matched crystal gold-wire coils and an open resonance-free construction. With exceptionally good price to performance and placed one step above our renowned The FROG ®, this cartridge sets new standards in replay precision and fidelity.

A few of The CANARY's properties:

  • Extremely accurate soundstage instrument positioning due to incorporated new technology.
  • Very flat frequency response without noticeable colorations.
  • Very high cross-talk damping.
  • Reduced sensitivity to load impedance variations.
  • Its front-pole protects the short cantilever, making it less sensitive to small handling mistakes.
  • A strong AlNiCo magnet produces a very clean sound that is also the trademark of its predecessors The COLIBRI and The CONDOR.
  • A very sturdy cantilever support strongly damps partial vibrations.
  • Its nylon body further damps all mechanical resonances and reduces their emission to the tone-arm.

Production time:

  • The production time for a The CANARY cartridge after ordering is about two weeks.
