Our flagship cartridge was born from 20 years of design experience and is the best cartridge we have ever made. An extra-thin Micro Ridge diamond tip, a minimal but elegant cube design and long gold-plated connectors provide the best deep groove contact and easy handling for maximum musical pleasure. Paired with the B-7 Ceramic tonearm and Mediterraneo turntable, you will get a true High-End analog set-up exclusively handmade in Italy.
The Tuscany series is available in two models: Tuscany Gold with an output level of 0.25mV and Tuscany Red with an output level of 0.35mV.
The Tuscany cartridges feature an extra-thin Micro Ridge diamond tip developed with Adamant-Namiki, the world’s most famous professional diamond manufacturer: the special multi-faced cut guarantees the best deep vinyl groove contact possible.
The diamond tip is mechanically inserted and blocked into a new telescopic Boron cantilever held by a titanium pipe, resulting in increased rigidity for the whole structure. Every titanium pipe is finely machined from a single block of metal in 4 spokes that handle the cartridge silver micro coils hilt by a teflon spacer to achieve great rigidity while allowing a perfect alignment building precision for best tracking results.
The non-deformable harmonic steel cantilever suspension is blocked with a gold plated nut on the bottom side of the crossbar gold case positioned behind the micro-coils teflon spacer to avoid unwanted vibration and improve the solid groove tracking ability even further.
With thinner and longer gold-plated pin connectors, Tuscany is able to provide a wider, ideal contact with the arm cinch to avoid energy dispersion and improve grounding for a surprisingly silent background that will show at best every single detail.
The body’s cube design offers fantastic structural rigidity and gorgeous style, it also makes VTA adjustments very intuitive and precise having a perfectly flat bottom line. Tuscany’s 7050 alloy ultra-light body is injected with fluid polymers to provide a pronounced dampening control effect.
The Italian high-quality finishes and exotic structure of the Tuscany Series are designed to satisfy the most demanding ears for uncompromised musical pleasure.
Tuscany Gold can be driven by quality active MC phono preamplifiers without the need of Step-Up transformers due to its extra-light, precisely hand-wrapped micro-coils in pure silver that enable 4Ω of internal impedance and 0.25mV of output level.
Tuscany Red helped by its 20Ω high internal impedance and the 0.35mV output level can be easily matched with any MC active phono preamp without Step-Up transformers.
