IROX ULTIMATE - High Output Phono Cartridge
The IROX Ultimate cartridge is hand-made to extremely exacting specifications by the president and chief engineer of the Soundsmith, using carefully selected and precision processed magnetic materials. The unique design results in a virtually ”indestructable" cartridge, providing the listener with unparalleled performance through employing a tiny, ultra-low mass high-purity moving iron element. The IROX Ultimate cartridge differs primarily from other cartridges in that the moving mass has been reduced to an astonishing small level, with the stylus and cantilever using the best choices of material, shape and structure to achieve a level of durability heretofore not achievable.
A key optimizing element in The IROX Ultimate is the use of a single-piece, ultra low-mass moving iron, stylus and cantilever assembly. In a similar sense to a “moving coil” cartridge, it does not have user replaceable styli, as The IROX Ultimate is designed for optimal performance.
