The MC phono cartridge explores unknown possibility of analog playback.
Ultimate Line is extreme MC phono cartridge series, the material structure renewed after almost a quarter of century by means of adopting ultra-degree hardness dry-carbon fiber to its housing while succeeding the fundamental motor system design philosophy of Shelter. The compression ratio of 60t class carbon fiber material used to Ultimate Line has far higher hardness than conventional 24t dry-carbon fiber, which material is the world-first time to use the phono cartridge. In addition to the dry-carbon fiber’s original characteristic of resonance free, high internal loss and elastic rate with superb shielding effect to external noise, the 60t carbon fiber used to Shelter Ultimate Line reproduces subtle signal without coloration and deep quietness, and its structure is effective to all other aspects in different dimension.
The flagship model of Harmony is adopting innocent solid dry-carbon fiber for entire housing and affiliated model of Accord adopts the same material to its base plate. With adopting the leading-edge of carbon fiber technology available in Japan the Shelter MC phono cartridge explores unknown possibility of analog playback. We hope that you enjoy to listening the new reproduction ability through Shelter Ultimate Line.
