Ausstattungsliste: Linn Akiva
In a moving-coil cartridge, coils connected to the stylus move in relation to fixed magnets to create electrical signals. Moving-coil cartridges generally create a lower output than moving-magnet cartridges which means they should be partnered with a phono pre-amplifier with suitable impedance loading such as the Linn Linto.
The design of the Akiva incorporates an advanced magnetic assembly structure to produce a higher output with noticeably better tracking and even lower distortion than any previous Linn cartridge.
The assembly structure in the Akiva is constructed around a machined-from-solid alloy body for complete rigidity. The suspension mechanism supports hand-wound coils secured in a high-precision rigid assembly, terminated with gold contacts for superb signal transmission.
Akiva uses the finest nude diamond stylus and benefits from a ceramic boron cantilever for ultra low mass and extremely high rigidity. It also features a triple-point mounting system to ensure accurate coupling to a Linn Ekos SE or Akito tonearm.
Like all Linn cartidges, Akiva is precision-engineered to protect cherished vinyl recordings whilst maximising your enjoyment of the music. Akiva represents Linn cartridge engineering at its finest.
