AuricleTM Cartridge body
The Umami Red body is machined from A7075 aluminum alloy with exclusive AuricleTM body design, Ebony Wood inlay, and tapped mounting holes.
Urushi Lacquer
The multi-layered Urushi lacquer finish originates from the famous Japanese Makie-artistic tradition, adding to the rich sound and optics.
Microline stylus
The ‘nude’ natural diamond stylus design is cut and polished to mimic the cutting head stylus used to Master or “cut” all vinyl records.
Boron cantilever
Boron, with a hardness comparable to diamond, was selected for the Umami Red to rigidly hold the Microline stylus.
Moving coil generator
The rare earth samarium/cobalt magnet with pure copper wires, expertly hand-wound onto the square plate Permalloy armature.
Cryogenic processing
This ‘cold annealing’ process at near absolute zero temperature is used to treat many of the components in the generator and the signal output pins.
