The world’s first and only “Tunable” and "Customizable" phono cartridge
We are proud to introduce to the audiophile market our first product, the Audio MusiKraft shell system based on the legendary Denon DL103 and 103R phono cartridges. A modification to the original cartridge is required as our shell system replaces the standard plastic casing. Our shell was designed by Stefan Figiel and Richard Quirion, longtime vinyl aficionados. Years of research and development were invested, during that period many prototypes were auditioned and voiced. The present shell is the culmination of all this work and offers many advantages in ways of bringing the Denon 103 to a higher level of performance, along with personalizing the sound and looks to one's tastes. When liberated from its plastic casing and merged to our shell, you will be able to hear the full potential of the classic Denon cartridge.
