The Colibri is Van Den Hull's top model. Its the result of builder A.J Van Den Hulls decades of continuous research and refinement. His cartridges are found on some of the finest system around the world. This XGP series features a cross shaped modulator and matched crystal gold wire coils.
Advances of the Colibri over the world renown Grasshopper Beauty series are:
- By minimizing and adapting the cartridge’s total magnetic circuit the related distortion and (Barkhausen) noise have undergone a considerable decrease. This opens up many subtle sound details that never have been heard before; Especially the decay of instrument sounds now stands out much more clearly in the music’s totality.
- Due to the minimization of the cartridge’s total magnetic circuit the cartridge’s mass has been reduced. Together with the possibility to tune the cartridge’s static compliance on special customer demand it is now possible to use very light tonearms whilst maintaining a very good tracking ability.
- By removing the frontpole is has been possible to apply an even shorter cantilever; This further improves the groove-modulation-transduction’s directness and accuracy.
- Due to the minimal magnetic design the output voltage has slightly reduced.
