The Eroica LX is a true audiophile moving coil cartridge which features an advanced pole shoe design using a powerful rare earth Neodymium magnet. This unique construction allows a shortened magnetic path, which helps reduce the amount of iron in the record cartridge, keeping the weight down to just 5.5 g.
Rigidity is also of prime importance and the Pocan body of the cartridge enables it to be clamped solidly to the headshell, keeping energy losses to an absolute minimum. This cartridge uses a Gyger II line contact stylus with a low output which means it must be used with an amplifier which features a dedicated moving coil phono input.
The Eroica LX offers an exceptionally high standard of performance and reliability.
