The Cartridge Man
The Cartridge Man has been involved with all aspects of analogue reproduction for over 30 years - from record production to the manufacture of high quality phono cartridges.

Central to their operating philosophy is that of offering high performance - both measured and audible, but always with a view to giving value for money.

All Cartridge Man products are designed and manufactured by themselves, therefore having an in-depth knowledge of their products.

The playback of a record should imitate the cutting of the lacquer as closely as possible.

During the cutting process the cutter diamond makes an angle of 90 degrees at all instances from the beginning of the groove to its end. Obviously, the best way to read a record groove is by using an arm which follows the groove in a similar fashion as in the cutting process.

The Music Mat

To gain the maximum amount of information from a gramophone record and to present that information as realistically as possible must be the main aim of anyone involved in the design of analogue front end equipment such as turntables, arms and cartridges...

...This statement may be self-evident, but it doesn’t mean to say that such a goal is always achieved; most times, sadly, there is a big gap between what could be achieved and what actually is achieved. It is true to say, therefore, that most of the front ends out there can be improved, and this is what the Music Mat is designed to do.

The Cartridge Man Digital Levelling Gauge
The Cartridge Man Digital Levelling Gauge
It is a well known fact that for optimum performance, a turn-table should always be precisely levelled. Whilst bubble-levels have always been used for the levelling procedure, best accuracy is not always guaranteed and it can certainly be frustrating to centre the bubble. The Cartridge Man has now introduced a highly accurate, easy-to-use and all-electronic Digital Levelling Gauge. This unit presents a digital read-out of both planes simultaneously to a resolution and accuracy of 0.1g. Four quadrant LEDs give an unambiguous indication of which side(s) need lowering or raising.

The Cartridge Man Digital Stylus Force Gauge
The Cartridge Man Digital Stylus Force Gauge
Users of vinyl are well aware of the importance of being able to accurately set their cartridge tracking down-force. Failure to do this can result in anything from degraded sonic performance, through to mis-tracking and even damage to the record and stylus.
The only readily available method of setting the down-force has been the Shure Force Balance - fine value for money, but suffering from only 0.1g resolution, somewhat fiddly set-up and a slightly non-optimum measurement height.

The Cartridge Man Isolator
The Cartridge Man Isolator
The isolator is, in effect, a two way filter. Its purpose is to break the mechanical feedback loop that is made as soon as the stylus touches the record.

In tests, the isolator has been shown to reduce the noise floor level by 3dB (a cut of 50%). This reduction allows far more low level information into the audio picture, improving sound stage, imaging and resolution, not to mention the overall timbre of instruments.

The MusicMaster Phono Cartridge

The MusicMaster cartridge is the product of a steady programme of refinement, it has taken approximately fifteen years of development to create the Mk III version.

They have now moved on and made a rather dramatic change; enter the MusicMaster which took them another step closer to the original performance.

Instead of the high purity copper coils used in the Mk III they have substituted very pure silver (99.99%) coils and incorporated other changes; the result is a major step forward in analogue viny replay.
