Stereo Phono Cartridge

Empire 1000 ZE/X


The Empire 1000 cartridge is the pulse of your entire music system.

It keeps every note in true character from the lowest B of the contra bassoon to the highest C of the Piccolo.

It has instinct. It can pick up a sound as low as 4Hz where the sense of feeling occurs before the sense of hearing, or as high as 40kHz, well beyond the normal range of hearing.

The 1000 cartridge makes your records come alive with razor sharp stereo separation (more than 30db) over a frequency spectrum of 10 octaves.

Instruments don't waver; the only sound you hear is of exact depth and dimension of your recording.


Frequency response: 4 to 40,000Hz

Output voltage: 5.0mV

Channel separation: 35dB

Tracking force: 0.25 to 1.25g

Stylus type: hand polished elliptical

Stylus replacement: S1000ZE / X-ERD (black)
