"This cartridge is quite some wolf in (red) sheep’s clothing. Axia is one hell of a musical player, not sheepish in trying to extrapolate the best from the music, and more than justifies it price when comparing with others at this price point. It worked well with all the music I played, only at times showing me slightly that I could do better, which I guess is why you might want to spend more on the Pheonix S or Proteus. I liked this model a lot, and maybe when my Kontrapunkt stylus gets blunt I’ll reinvest in an Axia .
"So, if you want a life changing experience, and want to step up your vinyl game, you won't go wrong with this cartridge or any cartridge from Transfiguration, that is, of course, in my humble opinion."
1. Push pull damping
A special compound has newly been meticulously designed and fabricated to provide total stylus/coil alignment and control. It's non-sensitivity to temperature change keeps the damping coefficient stable and improbes tracing accuracy.
2. Twin coils on the cantilever fulcrum
Minimises dynamic mass and mechanical impedance, enabling instant, accurate reaction to every groove detail, including the ability to handle massive transients without overshoot or break-up.
3. Special alloy core for coil assembly
This increases sensitivity by 25dB, improves signal to noise ratio eliminating a usual source of distortion.
4. Neodymium magnet
Thanks to the much higher induced magnetism of the neodymium magnet in the rear of the double ring magnet
s, the coil-turns of the generator have been reduced. It is very helpful to reduce the internal impedance to 4 ohms, which contributes to the improvement in the solidarity with transparency.
5. Low mass tip
Ogura PA (3 x 30µm) tip shares many of the advantages of the flagship MC cartridge "The Proteus". Its function is to reproduce the character of the original recorded sound - not add or subtract its own deficiences.
6. Anti-resonance cartridge body
The solid cartridge body utilizes both shape and material to create a totally inert environment for the electromagnetic elements. These elements are more effectively insulated from arm, turntable and tracing noises, further reducing any tonal coloration of the music and lessening the illusion of distracting mechanical noises.
