MY SONIC LABS

The My in the company name My Sonic Lab refers to the initials of its Japanese designer: Mr. Yoshio Matsudaira.

(Japanese honorifics are similar to English, with titles like "Mister" and "Miss", but in Japanese, which has many honorifics, their use is mandatory in many formal and informal social situations.)

Mr. Yoshio Matsudaira founded My Sonic Lab in 2003 after an illustrious career spanning over forty years designing cartridges, phono stages and tonearms for the likes of Koetsu.

At My Sonic Lab he designed and introduced the EMINENT, a high-output, low-impedance MC cartridge and the matching MC transformer Stage 202. So achieving his design goal of producing a moving coil cartridge with very low internal impedance. He believes this design fully realizes the energy producing potential of an MC cartridge.

Eminent Ex

Eminent Ex

The result of master cartridge designer Yoshio Matsudaira seeking natural reproduction by minimizing signal loss, internal distortion, and phase distortion. Eminent EX utilizes Matsudaira-san’s unique SH-μX magnetic core. This special core material has higher permeability and flux density than the core material typically used in MC cartridges. It allows My Sonic Lab to use fewer coil windings than other moving coil cartridges, minimizing music robbing distortions, while not sacrificing output.

Hyper Eminent EX

Hyper Eminent EX

The sound of My Sonic Lab cartridges are the result of master cartridge designer Yoshio Matsudaira seeking natural reproduction by minimizing signal loss, internal distortion, and phase distortion. All My Sonic cartridges utilize Matsudaira-san’s unique SH-μX magnetic core. This special core material has higher permeability and flux density than the typical iron core material used in MC cartridges. It allows My Sonic Lab to use fewer coil windings than other moving coil cartridges.

SH-1rh

SH-1rh

The My Sonic Lab SH-1RH headshell was developed with an emphasis on sound quality. This high-grade design is made using hard anodized aluminum alloy (A6063S) with excellent strength to support any cartridge you choose and keep unwanted resonances at bay. Moreover, the mounting holes are fixed positions with 3-points placed at +/- 3 mm intervals from the center. This design pattern completely holds the cartridge in place and makes cartridge mounting and overhang alignment extremely simple.
