Products - Analog - Moving Coil (MC) Cartridge
Product Brand : Shelter
Product Name : Harmony
Product Genre : Analog
Condition : NEW

Shelter's new reference model! For the first time in a Shelter pickup, the Harmony uses CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic) for the cartridge's body-shell. This material has superior characteristics of absorbing and decreasing vibrations. The resonance frequency of this CFRP material is out of the audible frequency range, thus having less coloration but allowing the reproduced signal many sonic advantages.

The Harmony features an aluminum cantilever with OFC lead wire. The cantilever is slightly shorter for added strength and rapid response. This combination of modern body-shell and traditional motor system allows the Harmony to draw out subtle nuances from an LP's grooves. At the same time, it has the ability to capture and reproduce natural sounds regardless of genre.
