Aidas NEW Mammoth Gold cartridge [Expired]


no longer for sale

Called the Mammoth because the body is made out of really old mammoth tusk. I kid you not!

And Gold because it is their top of the line cartridge.

Personally, I don't care what a cartridge is made from, as long as it works. And this absolutely does. And amazingly well.

Bob Levy did an accurate review here...

One thing Bob didn't really mention that I think may be the Mommoth's strongest feature is that it matches or betters the best bass I've ever heard from any cartridge. And it's not just big robust bass, it is well defined and three dimensional bass. Texture is among the best as well.

Boron cantilever/Superfine Micro Ridge nude stylus

Low 4.5 ohm impedance

.28mV output

It has all the good stuff.

I need to clarify one thing. The wire that is standard in a Mammoth "Gold" is gold wire.
A while back Mammoth offered both wires for the "Gold". I hope they still do. I much prefer the speed and more natural sound of copper wire as opposed to the gold.

Still has the gold pins as well as all the other "Gold" features. There is much more to the Gold model than the the wire. 

I've heard both wires in the Mammoth "Gold". The gold wire has a fuller but slower sound. Dynamics are slightly muted. Highs don't have the sparkle I like. In fact, the highs are a little rolled off with the gold wire. I will say the gold wire does have the better midrange textures.

I have had similar results with vd Hul and ZYX gold wired carts. Not that it really matters but it also has the coolest cartridge display box I've ever seen. Just shows the details from Aidas are ALL important and they throw in some excellent Russian vodka.
