Air Tight PC-1 Supreme Phono Cartridge

September 23, 2014


Darryl Lindberg has posted a review of the Air Tight PC-1 Supreme phono cartridge ($11,000) at Part-Time Audiophile. His conclusions:

“And Poem is just the kind of work that highlights the Supreme’s ability to capture that far-off cosmic itch—at least insofar as it’s able to be recreated by my system. My Avalon Eidolons are excellent speakers, downright ravishing in their reproduction of the disc’s abundant atmosphere and nuance; however, realistic reproduction of the ultimate bass foundation of this piece is simply beyond the capability of the Eidolons. I’d be willing to bet that the Supreme and this LP would really light up a pair of über-speakers, but that’s a sonic upgrade that will require significantly more discussion at Casa Lindberg.”
