The unique Coreless Straight-Flux design allows Top Wing cartridges to more accurately retrieve the information with less distortion than any MC cartridge. Additionally, the extremely low factory retipping cost of $1650, thousands less than a factory retip for any high end MC, makes it an excellent long term value. http://topwing.jp/RedSparrow.html
From Top Wing: As the name suggests, the coreless straight flux method has no core material, and by arranging the left and right coils in a V shape directly above the magnet, the magnetic flux changes due to the minute sound grooves picked up by the stylus tip are transmitted straight. Disturbance of the sound due to the coil output lines of the MC type operating irregularly in the magnetic flux, and deterioration of responsiveness due to the long magnetic path length of the MM type do not occur with this method. In addition, this method ensures the same high maintainability as the MM type. The stylus (needle, cantilever, magnet assembly), coil, damper and all other parts can be replaced. This allows you to replace your stylus at a price that is one-tenth the price of the main unit.
