  • Description

    The Transfiguration phono cartridges feature the unique yokeless ring-magnet technology developed by the company’s passionate founder, Seeji Yoshioka. His designs seek neutrality and accuracy over coloration, without sounding hard-edged or lean.

    The Phoenix delivers performance at its price-point that was unachievable by any cartridge at any price, even just a few years ago. Just as the Proteus advances the absolute state-of-the-art in what is possible with a phono cartridge in terms of musically natural reproduction of the analog LP, the New Phoenix re-defines what is possible in its price class (and considerably far above it). The Phoenix is the new price/performance leader in the areas of transparency, timbre, bass-impact and articulation...oh, yes, and in the all important JPF factor (Just Plain Fun).

    Technical details

    • Push pull damping
    • A special compound has newly been meticulously designed and fabricated to provide total stylus/coil alignment and control. It's non-sensitivity to temperature change keeps the damping coefficient stable and improves tracing accuracy.
    • Twin coils on the cantilever fulcrum minimizes dynamic mass and mechanical impedance, enabling instant, accurate reaction to every groove detail, including the ability to handle massive transients without overshoot or break-up.
    • Special alloy core for coil assembly increases sensitivity by 30dB, improves signal to noise ratio eliminating a usual source of distortion.
    • Neodymium magnet. Thanks to the much higher induced magnetism of the neodymium magnet in the rear of the double ring magnets, the coil-turns of the generator have been reduced. It is very helpful to reduce the internal impedance to 2 Ohms, which contributes to the improvement in the solidarity with transparency.
    • Low mass tip -Ogura PA (3 x 30µm) tip shares many of the advantages of the flagship MC cartridge "The Proteus". Its function is to reproduce the character of the original recorded sound - not add or subtract its own deficiencies.
    • Anti-resonance cartridge body - The solid cartridge body utilizes both shape and material to create a totally inert environment for the electromagnetic elements. These elements are more effectively insulated from arm, turntable and tracing noises, further reducing any tonal coloration of the music and lessening the illusion of distracting mechanical noises.
