2/4 Channel Moving-Magnet Cartridge



JVC has established a new and dynamic relationship between cartridge design and quality by inventing the Pulse Train Analytical Method.

The X-1 phono cartridge was the first product designed with the new method.

For 2 and 4-channel use, the cartridge features a wide range, clear definition and transparent tonal quality.

It faithfully reproduces silence, however transient, between notes and adds tremendous presence to the reproduction of music.
