LP GEAR CARBON FIDELITY CF6500LE CARTRIDGE
- Music that makes you want to listen.®
Listen to the new voice of music. Carbon fiber composites offer 10 times the strength of steel at half the weight. Codeveloped and designed with LP GEAR by Audio-Technica's best engineers, the new Carbon Fidelity CF6500LE Spectra Elliptical
cartridge benefits from the latest quality parts and materials technology featuring a super carbon fiber cantilever that respond to the most complex high amplitude
attacks and transients as well as the most heavily recorded passages. The updated design, tight specifications, Twin-Flux magnets, high-quality moving system fulcrum and radial damping ring allied with a Spectra elliptical diamond tip
produce music that makes you want to listen.
Mastered to illuminate in comparison to lofty cartridges beyond the economics of most listeners, the CF6500LE touches and endears the more you listen. You won't want to go back to your underperforming or pricey cartridge.
You'll hear, feel and sense the music exquisitely rendered — harmonically full-bodied, refractive and refreshingly crystal clean with luminous detail spatially radiating with realness.
You'll experience remarkable note clarity, projection and nuanced tonal complexity previously unheard and unappreciated.2

Each producer's carbon fiber differs from those of its competitors, and the processing details are considered to be intellectual property.
The special carbon fiber used in the Carbon Fidelity cartridges and styli is patiently and expertly considered for its signature characteristics
to bring out the subtleties and finesse of music extracted from the grooves of records and LPs. For carbon fiber info see: "The making of carbon fiber".
