Just when you think “It doesn’t get any better”…
With the revival in popularity of vinyl, requests came in to van den Hul to develop a high-end phono cartridge at a more affordable price than the famed COLIBRI. The result is the CRIMSON – one of the best available values in phono cartridges today. It is completely hand build by A.J. van den Hul himself and comes with a 200 hour service check-up, free of charge for the original owner.
The CRIMSON is a top performance, custom built, moving coil phono cartridge. A crossbreed of van den Hul’s CANARY and CONDOR. The cartridge is available in natural light and dark woods as well as in a red colored (also wooden) version. A Polycarbonate body is available at special request.
Specific characteristics of this great cartridge are a relatively high (0.9 mv) output, gold coils, a Samarium-Cobalt magnet, extended channel seperation, and superb tracking abillity.
“…demonstrated a level of coherence and tangibility beyond any cartridge that I have heard in my listening room. Not much more to say than that. Highly recommended!” – READ FULL REVIEW.
