Lyra Etna Moving Coil Cartridge
Highly sough after and one of the most desired cost no object cartridges made !
No low offer considered.
Lyra again turns the analog world on its ear with the introduction of
the Etna phono cartridge. Sharing its name with Sicily’s majestic Mount
Etna, Etna the cartridge is an impressive monument in its own right,
one that melds tried and true Lyra design tenets with designer Jonathan
Carr’s very latest thinking on phono cartridges.
structure is solid titanium, but unlike the renowned flagship 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 sexy 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
Etna’s asymmetric design employs an offset yoke, a
design concept first brought to fruition in the flagship Atlas. 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.
remains the only cartridge manufacturer to mount the cantilever
directly into the cartridge body, which results in a seamless, totally
rigid connection between the cantilever assembly and headshell. The
cantilever is diamond-coated boron, tipped with a slot-mounted nude
line-contact diamond stylus.
Etna retains the X-shaped coil
formers first unveiled in the flagship 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.
introduction of Etna, the Titan i model is discontinued and now limited
to stock on hand. The Lyra line now comprises Delos, Kleos, Skala, Etna
While Etna is second from the top in Lyra’s line, one
listen will demonstrate that this cartridge’s performance would define
the very top of any other cartridge line. Atlas has a very refined,
elegant and voluptuous sound while Etna’s personality is more outgoing.
We truly believe that choosing between these two exceptional performers
will come down to one’s tastes and the system in which it will live. For
many customers Etna will be ideal and become their preferred Lyra.
