Vertere Mystic Moving Coil Cartridge Available

Vertere Acoustics announces its sapphire blue anodised Mystic Moving Coil Cartridge.

Vertere Acoustics has just announced that its new Mystic Moving Coil cartridge is now available in the UK.

The Vertere Mystic Moving Coil cartridge has been unveiled by company founder and CEO, Touraj Moghaddam. The £2000 cart is available in the UK now and will start shipping elsewhere shortly after with USA and European pricing of $2695 and €2498 respectively.

2019 has been an exceptionally productive year for Vertere Acoustics with the affordable but revolutionary DG-1 Dynamic Groove Record Player launching in May and, more recently, the new Red Line cables.

Touraj states that, unlike the DG-1, the Mystic Moving Coil is not revolutionary - instead, it is the culmination of experience, common sense, science and a little art.

Also, it looks pretty cool thanks to its sapphire blue anodised finish. 

The key to designing cartridges is to balance the design parameters: to deliver a cartridge that stays in the groove, retrieves the maximum musical information and is least affected by old or damaged records. 

In typically Touraj fashion, the resulting cartridge allows a broader selection of records to be played and enjoyed, rather than favorouring a particular genre such as orchestral or pop - something that many high-end cartridges seem to do. As far as he is concerned, a hi-fi enthusiast with a small record collection just does not have the right system yet.

The Mystic Moving Coil's solid aluminium alloy body is mass-tuned to the generator for optimum support and control of unwanted mechanical vibrations. The cartridge is attached to the tonearm using the supplied stainless steel thumbscrews for correct coupling of the cartridge body to the tonearm headshell. Furthermore, there is a trio of specifically designed contact points that provides the exact mechanical coupling required.

A micro Elliptical diamond stylus tip sits on an aluminium 7000 telescopic tube cantilever. It feeds a low mass generator that utilises a Samarium-Cobalt magnet with a low-mass cross coil made of pure virgin copper wires.

Vertere quotes a wideband frequency response of below 10Hz to 40kHz and output of 0.5mV. The 9.1g cartridge has a recommended tracking weight of 2g.

A super-nice touch is the alignment ridge on the front top that assists mounting Mystic to any Vertere tonearm. 

Price and availability

The Vertere Mystic Moving Coil cartridge is available now for £2000.
