My Sonic Lab Signature Platinum Moving Coil Phono Cartridge. Only 106 hours - just broken in! Straight cantilever. This is easily one of the top cartridges available today, and the top of the line from MSL.
The listener will experience a more precise sound, with a greater sense of speed and superior responsiveness than with the gentler, perhaps more self-indulgent Signature Gold. This has been achieved by employing a harder titanium high strength base together with a lightweight but stiffer boron cantilever. The boron cantilever offers faster energy/sound transfer which renders a more precise reproduction.
The sound provides pure emotion, outstanding fine-tuning, authority, balance and transparency with ease which will delight the listener and distinguish this pickup as one of the finest in the world.
"The Signature Platinum again delivers vivid imagery and solid dynamics. I have other cartridges in my collection that can come close, but nothing else in my experience has produced this level of realism with the grand piano.
"Of all the reviews I have ever written on cartridges, this is probably the most glowing ever. I speak with my heart and my wallet. Needless to say, I purchased the review sample. The Signature Platinum is My Sonic Lab’s most expensive cartridge yet, but it is still far less than many of the top cartridges now available. My other two top favorites are the Lyra Olympos (which for all practical purposes is unavailable) and the ZYX Optimum is more expensive and more finicky." – Richard Mak
