Monophonic Phono Cartridge

Tannoy Variluctance


The Tannoy Variluctance is a mono phono cartridge with easily replaceable Complidex Stylus assembly.

A superb precision engineered cartridge designed primarily to complete the Tannoy high fidelity domestic sound system but equally suitable for any other amplifier system of high professional standard.

The frequency response extends to well above 16 Kcs with complete absence of resonant peaks.

Even more important, there are no un-damped resonances in the sub-supersonic range to produce unwanted intermodulation effects or to colour background noise.


Output: 3.5mV

Inductance: 280mH

Tracking weight: 5g (LP), 7g (78rpm)

Actual cartridge weight: 9g (single play), 16g (turnover)

Stylus: 1, 2.5 or 3 mil sapphire or diamond
