Corus2 Cartridge

About this product

The Corus2 is the 2nd generation design of the celebrated Corus cartridge. It represents a significant upgrade in terms of both technology and sound quality. Employing a new VM arrangement, utilising two small magnets – one for each channel – in a ‘V’ configuration (instead of the heavier single magnet found in other moving magnet cartridges.)

Stereo separation is further improved by shielding the two magnets, which in turn reduces any possible crosstalk. The stylus is a nude Shibata design for superior detail, imaging and tracking.

The Corus2 also features an attractive new-look aluminium body, high quality PCOCC internal wiring and a specially selected damping compound. The ground-breaking combination of these new features result in a highly detailed, dynamic and full-frequency cartridge that delivers the performance of a more expensive cartridge in any vinyl playback system.
