Omni-Pivot Induced-Magnet Stereo Cartridge
Since the magnet itself in a moving magnet cartridge contributes significantly to its mass, ADC created and patented an induced magnet cartridge that reduces the mass in the moving system.
This allows the stylus to track with a lower force resulting in superior tracing accuracy and low distortion.
The XLM mkII improved has a Diasa tip, a diamond bonded to sapphire. Instead of the usual aluminium bushing to hold the diamond, the diamond tip is bonded to a sapphire base synthesizing a nude jewel mounting with very low mass.
The XLM is also available as the Integra, with the cartridge built into a moulded carbon fibre headshell.
Diamond tip: diasa elliptical 0.0003 x 0.0007"
Tracking force: 1.2g +-0.3g
Frequency response: 15Hz to 24kHz
There are probably only three or four phono cartridges that legitimately rank in the pantheon of all time super cartridges. Of these, the ADC XLM must be included, as many people consider it something of a reference standard.
