Linn's mid-range moving coil cartridge
Krystal uses the design principles of LInn's leading moving coil cartridge Kandid to capture the minute changes in the record groove, letting you hear every musical detail.
Krystal features a similar approach to minimising mass as Kandid, using a nude design to give the cartridge less inertia so it can react more quickly to the changes in the groove. It also uses the triple-point mounting system for a solid connection to the tonearm headshell, while the aircraft grade 7075 aluminium chassis provides a lightweight, stiff and stable platform for the generator. Even the adhesive used on Krystal was painstakingly selected to provide the most rigid bond possible to avoid any dampening effects.
Krystal benefits from the same design principles inherent to Linn's premium moving coil Kandid cartridge, allowing it to accurately track the minute modulations of a record groove.
Krystal now sits at the centre of Linn's cartridge range, beneath Kendo. Its highly musical presentation and increased agility offers marked sonic improvements over Adikt or Koil; providing the next step of the Sondek LP12 owner's journey towards vinyl playback perfection.
