Omni-Pivot Induced-Magnet Stereo Cartridge



The QLM 36 is designed with a new omni-pivot. Critical tolerances are held to within 1/4 the thickness of a human hair, allowing precision assembly plus repeatability of a new order in stereo phono cartridges.

The omni-pivot system is assembled without the use of unpredictable adhesives, further assuring the accuracy of specifications and consistency from cartridge to cartridge.

The precise locating of the new micro-machined armature in the omni-pivot means superb separation at all frequencies and unrestrained tracking.
