"The Lyra Etna MC Phono Cartridge fully succeeds as a replacement for the Lyra i. One of the most neutral - yet enticing sounding cartridges I've heard. it's also one I can recommend for any system and for any sonic or musical taste."  - Michael Fremer, Stereophile


Lyra Etna MC Phono Cartridge Lyra Etna MC Phono Cartridge is set to dethrone the top-rated Titan. No easy feat! Etna uses unique engineering to remove resonance. Not reduce it. Remove it. Everything is upgraded in Etna. Literally. Yes, it's a big step up in price, but one that yields gains in transparency, the removal of distortion, and remarkable accuracy. Etna's center structure is solid titanium, but unlike the Atlas (and the Titan i before it) this central core is surrounded by an outer body that is machined from highly-polished aircraft-grade aluminum and anodized with a brilliant black finish. The two pieces are press-fitted with resonance control rods and stainless steel screw bushings in a multi-material approach that is similar to the Skala's two-piece "blade structure" construction, but much improved in its rigidity and damping characteristics. The advantage of such constrained-layer construction is that no single material's sonic signature defines the sound of the cartridge. Etna's asymmetric design employs an offset yoke. By offsetting the front magnet carrier so that it is not in line with the cantilever assembly, a direct path is established between the cantilever assembly and the tonearm's headshell. Vibrations are quickly drained away once converted to electrical signals, effectively suppressing any induced resonances that would otherwise manifest as sonic coloration. Lyra Etna MC Phono Cartridge retains the X-shaped coil formers from Atlas. Compared to traditional square coil formers, the X-shape allows each channel to operate with greater autonomy from one another, increasing tracking consistency and channel matching while also improving channel separation due to the decrease in crosstalk. Lyra's new angle technology pre-biases the signal coils so they are perfectly aligned to the front and rear magnets during LP playback, which allows the coils to move optimally in all directions for superior, distortion-free playback.   Stock Image
