Air Tight's PC-1
Cartridges by Air Tight
Winner of many "Best of..." awards, the PC-1 is the culmination of 30 years of cartridge development and is considered to be among the best of the best.
A pinnacle of the art of cartridge design and manufacture.
Combining detail and dynamics with emotion and a sense of air and space, the PC-1 can recreate the original 3D musical event.
The 0.6mV output can be considerate "moderate" by moving coil standards, representing a relatively easy source for high end moving coil phono stages to drive.
These cartridges are hand-built, and sometimes suffer from ordering delays. It has been said that if you can get it right away it isn't high end!
