My Sonic Lab Eminent EX Moving Coil Cartridge


My Sonic Lab's Eminent EX is among the finest, most skillfully balanced cartridges I've heard.


If Mercury Records had designed a cartridge that captured the Living Presence sound, it would have been the My Sonic Labs. Not only does this playback device have more zap and dynamics, it also has a more liquid sound, and is so genuinely seductive you might well buy it on first listen.

In creating the Eminent Ex, master cartridge designer Yoshio Matsudaira focused on natural reproduction by minimizing signal loss, internal distortion, and phase distortion. This cartridge features Matsudaira-san’s unique SH-μX magnetic core that has higher permeability and flux density than the core material typically used in MC cartridges. This allows for fewer coil windings than other moving coil cartridges, which minimizes distortion without lowering signal output levels. It is a high-efficiency approach that offers wide dynamic range, fast transient response, low distortion, and high signal-to-noise ratio.
