We proudly release the new Phasemation PP-500, which is produced by our all efforts, accurately inheriting the lineage of Phasemation’s flagship cartridge PP-2000 achieving popularity after releasing it at the end of 2015.
While reducing the cost for the Phasemation PP-500, we have ensured the PP-2000’s fundamental performances such as the auditory lateralization, spatial reproducibility, medium-higher tone having high freshness, and lower tone resonance.
The technology of the flagship model PP-2000 is applied for this magnetic circuit structure. Therefore, just like the PP-2000, we have achieved for this product an excellent magnetic field having high efficiency and uniformity. Consequently the output is increased without making the vibration system heavier.
In order to aim for the best balance of optimum sound quality in this class, we improved the PP-500’s vibration system, adopting the base made of duralumin and tuned this vibration system exclusively for PP-500. Consequently, powerful sound quality and realistic sensation can be expressed.
High quality materials used in the PP-2000 and other models are well-acknowledged: cantilever made of pure boron material, magneto coil made of 6N oxygen-free copper wire, pure iron coil bobbin, damper, and so forth.
For the body, the well-acknowledged DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating has been adopted. The unclouded sound quality being well suited for the rigidity and vibration-damping properties have been realized. DLC（Diamond Like Carbon）is a generic name of a carbon film produced with vapor phase synthesis utilizing ion processing and the high rigidity and high electric insulation similar to a diamond.
