- The world’s first and only “Tunable” and "Customizable" phono cartridge -


This Audio MusiKraft champagne anodized phono cartridge comes with an installed modified Denon DL-103R generator and the necessary wood inserts and finish of your choice. 

We have chosen this alloy as it is widely used, affordable and well suited for the cartridge improvements we are looking for. Aluminum can be easily machined, is lightweight and numerous corrosion treatments and finishes are available. Given that production costs are lower than other materials, there is added value for the customer, making this shell our entry level.

This cartridge can be fully customized to your musical and/or visual preference.
