MC Cartridge
Product Features:

IKEDA Sound Labs AKIKO 10th anniversary MC cartridge.

We are pleased to announce the 10th anniversary model as AKIKO produced with the latest and most advanced technologies, materials and components we can possibly secure today.

We decided to adopt and use a cantilever made of Diamond, Known as the hardest material on the earth for AKIKO model, first among the Ikeda cartridges and then the stylus chip is made with micro ridge, so that an outline and orientation of sounds become much more clear and sonic transmission becomes much faster.

The body is made of the strongest Titanium by lathing a piece of solid billet of Titanium and then by a buff polishing on the surface of body. The color of the body is pinky gold processed through the coating of ion plating.

Ideally shaped yoke base is made of the most advanced high quality anti-vibration alloy allowing superior absorption of vibrations. The Neodymium magnet used is the strongest available and the coils are made of PCOC firstly adopted on AKIKO cartridge.

The AKIKO cartridge is sophisticatedly assembled, precisely aligned, and manually produced one by one by spending plenty of time and processes with the fulfillment of various kinds of conditions required for the best phono cartridge as a playback device so that all the musical sound elements hidden in analog record disks will be well retrieved.
