Product Info


The original Roksan Corus cartridge was introduced in 1989. It was based on Goldring’s excellent 1000 series cartridge platform, with engineering delights that gave it a distinctive sound.

Initially, there were two grades available, and the range-topping Black was a firm favorite at What Hi-Fi? It was excellent; delivering a combination of detail and dynamics most rivals could not transcend.

Thirty years later there is the new Corus2. There is practically no DNA between the old and the new. The new one is based on Audio Technica technology and features that company’s VM dual magnet design (one per channel) rather than having a single magnet as used in most rivals.

The original genuine Roksan Corus stylus for the Roksan Corus Black phono cartridge features a highly polished acclaimed Gyger II super fine line diamond for excellent tracking ability, superb detail retrieval and minimal surface noise.
