The DDT - II Special

A custom handbuilt moving coil cartridge with VDH-type 1 tip, boron cantilever, matched crystal silver-wire coils and 0.65 mV/channel.

The designation “Special” in this cartridge’s name indicates important improvements over its previous version:

  • The cartridge is equipped with a thicker frontpole and an extra small magnet, both further enhancing its resolution capabilities and output voltage.
  • The cartridge’s name DDT stands for Depth, Detail and Timbre.
