Exquisitely crafted with onyx stone, the Apollo MC Cartridge uses some of the best parts in the world. Each component in this cartridge is fine-tuned and tweaked to deliver a performance worthy of bearing the TriangleART logo. Some propriety design changes have been made to yield a much improved sound quality. We have also taken more time in the assembly of each cartridge, each with the utmost care.
A natural, high-quality diamond (V V S 1 grade or higher) is also used in the design to control the resonance along with fine copper wiring and a gold plated pin.
As with our Zeus cartridge, we firmly believe in combining speed and details without sacrificing musicality. This philosophy is inherited in the Apollo, but has gone far and beyond to incorporate even more details, more transparency, more finesse, more air, and more musicality. With Apollo, music is crystal clear, without fogginess, without haziness. Each note is sharp, crisp, and clean, as well as full of body and authority. Louis Armstrong’s raspy voice can be fully appreciated, and distinguishing the cedar from rosewood from spruce in the bodies of acoustic guitars can be done with ease.
We thought that with the Zeus cartridge, we are done with our analog accomplishment but as perfectionist, we have to keep striving and keep improving our line. The stone body Apollo is our next achievement so please listen and audition it – you will be in analog heaven once you savor the sound of this gorgeously built cartridge.
With the Zeus cartridge, we are finished with our analog accomplishment. However, as perfectionists, we keep striving to keep improving our line. The stone bodied Apollo was our next goal. Our request is that you take care to listen – Apollo is very worthy of its godly name.
