Just as the Orpheus advanced the absolute state-of-the-art in what was possible with a phono cartridge in terms of musically natural reproduction of the analog LP, the new Phoenix re-defines what is possible in its price class (and considerably far above it). The Phoenix is the new price/performance leader in the areas of transparency, timbre, bass-impact and articulation...oh, yes, and in the all important JPF factor (Just Plain Fun).

The huge gains in musical performance by both the Phoenix and the Orpheus over cartridges already recognized as world-leaders in their respective price ranges is both gratifying and encouraging at a time when analog playback seems stronger and more healthy than ever, at a time when digital playback seems almost in search of an identity. At a time when the average listener to digital (the ubiquitous ipod listener) is accepting a significant reduction in sound quality from even redbook CD, LP lovers are discovering new worlds in the same old grooves they have been listening to for over half a century.

We are very grateful to Mr. Yoshioka and the other pioneers of the new analog era, for bringing us closer to the emotion and experience of live music than we dreamed possible a few years back, when reports of the death of analog circulated, apparently, prematurely…

The Phoenix brings an exciting, full-bodied sound with tremendous rhythm and bass impact. With a sparkle on top that never sounds too hot, it may be the perfect cartridge for jazz and classical music lovers. The double-ring-magnet construction ensures the usual Transfiguration musical coherence and phase-linearity, which presents a seamless view into the musical performance.
The Phoenix delivers performance at its price-point that was unachievable by any cartridge at any price, even just a few years ago.

Technical Detials

1. Push pull damping

A special compound has newly been meticulously designed and fabricated to provide total stylus/coil alignment and control. It's non-sensitivity to temperature change keeps the damping coefficient stable and improbes tracing accuracy.

2. Twin coils on the cantilever fulcrum

Minimises dynamic mass and mechanical impedance, enabling instant, accurate reaction to every groove detail, including the ability to handle massive transients without overshoot or break-up.

3. Special alloy core for coil assembly

This increases sensitivity by 25dB, improves signal to noise ratio eliminating a usual source of distortion.

4. Neodynium magnet

Thanks to the much higher induced magnetism of the neodymium magnet in the rear of the double ring magnets, the coil-turns of the generator have been reduced. It is very helpful to reduce the internal impedance to 7 ohms, which contributes to the improvement in the solidarity with transparency.

5. Low mass tip

Ogura PA (3 x 30um) tip shares many of the advantages of the flagship MC cartridge "The Orpheus". Its function is to reproduce the character of the original recorded sound - not add or subtract its own deficiences.

6. Anti-resonance cartridge body

The solid cartridge body utilizes both shape and material to create a totally inert environment for the electromagnetic elements. These elements are more effectively insulated from arm, turntable and tracing noises, further reducing any tonal coloration of the music and lessening the illusion of distracting mechanical noises.
