THE VESSEL R3SS CARTRIDGE
- Much more than music.
The creative brief for The Vessel™ cartridge series is simple: "Allow the artist to express his music with its amalgam of contradiction as it is elevates and transcends with the natural and artificial interpretation of the human art."
With its hardness and soundspeed, Ruby has far higher sensitivity to stimuli from groove modulations. The refined cylindrical Ruby
cantilever in the R3SS discovers and induces more material from groove modulations, more energy sheltered within record grooves thus conveying more inspired sentience and realism.
In combination with its Nude Super Shibata diamond tip, the R3SS offers immersion in the music's tonal sophistication, harmonics, texture, dynamism and liquidity.
