Micro Seiki LC-40W


The cantilever of the Micro Seiki LC-40W has been constructed of a special aluminium alloy for high rigidity and minimum resonance.

Output terminals are finished with hard gold plating to assure maximum transmission of signal and to prevent corrosion.

The coil windings are made of ultra-pure copper, specifically coated at time of manufacture to prevent oxidation and degeneration of the coils.

The LC-40W stylus tip is a highly polished precision ground diamond for low moving mass and high tracking ability.
