ZYX R50 Bloom 3 Cartridge

Available in 2 Outputs 

Low 0.24mV 

High 0.48mV

The all new ZYX R-50 Bloom 3 replaces the older R-50 Bloom MC cartridge.   Amongst the changes and new specifications are a black aluminium cantilever and something which ZYX call their new  Super High speed reproduction engine (magnetic circuit),  specially processed to null magnetic resistance within magnetic gap, and enables high speed power generation against signals over entire bandwidth straightly without time delay.

The ZYX R50 Bloom 3 may be the entry level ZYX, but its performance is anything but entry level. This amazing phono cartridge majors on musicality. It is neutral but has genuine bass authority with loads of low level texture and information and it throws a big expansive soundstage full of detail. It is also remarkably refined and smooth in its presentation, especially at higher frequencies where many others highlight their deficiencies. Still the class leading MC cartridge at its price point? We think so!
