Lyra
Based in Tokyo, LYRA is headed by Stig Bjorge from Norway, with American design engineer Jonathan Carr, and Japanese master craftsman Yoshinori Mishima making cartridges and supervising production. All products are manufactured in Japan with microscopic attention to detail under the direct supervision of these three. LYRA products are characterized by advanced design engineering allied with Japanese artisanal craftsmanship and build quality. Each new product is designed from the ground and up and introduces meaningful industry-leading advances.
Lyra Etna
Lyra Etna
It is always a challenge to design a worthy heir to a successful product. For the Lyra Etna, however, that challenge was twice as difficult as normal. On one hand its primary goal was to replace the popular Titan. On the other hand, the Etna design project had a second goal, which was to achieve as high levels of performance as possible. If this meant that Etna would give stern competition to the flagship Atlas, so be it.

Lyra Atlas MC Phono Cartridge
Lyra Atlas MC Phono Cartridge

Introducing the ATLAS, the world's first asymmetric MC phono cartridge.

The Atlas is Lyra's new flagship. It is also the first time that anyone has made an asymmetrically structured phono cartridge. Why asymmetric? Because, by literally misplacing the barriers to great sound that are present in every other cartridge today, it confers a number of important performance benefits.

First, having differently-shaped structures on the left and right sides suppresses the formation of standing waves inside the cartridge body, thereby creating a less resonant, more neutral cartridge body. Second, the asymmetric construction offsets the front magnet carrier and its associated mounting system so that it is no longer in line with the cantilever assembly. Doing so opens up a direct, solid path between the cantilever assembly and tonearm headshell so that vibrations from the cantilever can be quickly drained away once they have been converted into electrical signals, again suppressing resonances.

The New Angle on LP Reproduction, Level 2:
The Lyra Kleos MC Phono Cartridge

Although many MC cartridges have good performance, their sound is held back by how they are designed. The problem is, the signal coils should have the same angle as the magnetic circuit during playback, but MC cartridges are typically designed so that the opposite happens - applying normal tracking force pushes the coils out of alignment. This impairs coil sensitivity and linearity, and reduces sound quality.

Lyra SPT Stylus Performance Treatment / Cleaner
Lyra SPT Stylus Performance Treatment / Cleaner
The Lyra SPT’s primary function is straightforward - by helping to keep your cartridge's stylus scrupulously clean, it assists tracking and minimises damage to your records and cartridge.

Unlike any other stylus cleaner, Lyra employed extensive listening tests during the development process of SPT. Not only will it work well with their own Lyra models, but you will find that it offers a significant sonic boost to other high-performance cartridge designs as well.

The New Angle on LP Reproduction: Introducing the Lyra Delos MC Phono Cartridge (Argo i replacement).

An analog LP played back with an MC cartridge can sound exceptionally good. Yet, it is a surprising fact that the design of conventional MCs restricts the sound quality that can be achieved from LPs.

An essential factor for proper operation of an MC cartridge is the angle between the magnetic circuit, signal coils and core. Performance is optimal when the angles are all aligned, but any significant difference in the angles will cause the formation of a strong and directional flux that will flow constantly from the magnetic circuit into the signal core. This directional magnetic flux will orient the core toward a specific direction and make it impossible for the core to move with equal ease in all directions, which is necessary for proper cartridge performance.
