Empire 888

Stereo Phono Cartridge

Empire 888


The Empire 888 series cartridge is the pulse of your entire music system.

The characteristic sound of each musical note is determined by the fundamental vs harmonic balance.

Failure to produce the lowest fundamental or the highest harmonic frequency loses the subtle nuances of the musical note.

The new Empire 888 series cartridge keeps every note in true character from the lowest B of the contra bassoon to the highest C of the piccolo.

It can pick up a sound as low as 8.15 cps, where the sense of feeling occurs before the sense of hearing, or as high as 40K cps, well beyond the normal range of hearing. The new Empire 888 Series cartridge makes your records come alive.

It also gives you razor sharp stereo separation (more than 30 DB) 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.
