New Reference Ruby cartridge from Avid


Press release | For twenty-five years Avid has pushed the envelope of vinyl reproduction, its turntables now renowned throughout the audio industry and discerning music lovers the world over. Our Reference Ruby cartridge is the first of three low output moving coil cartridges to be released and has been designed from the ground up, with every element individually assessed and then as a whole.

As the name implies the cantilever is solid Ruby with a Micro-Ridge Diamond stylus. The moving mass has been reduced with less coil windings to improve dynamics, but the output is a healthy 0.32mV due to the enlarged magnet assembly. Overall mass is 9.1grms.

The cartridge body is designed and manufactured by Avid and encapsulates components usually unsupported, resulting in less internal resonance and much attention has been paid to energy transfer.

The Avid Reference Ruby is available now with a UK retail price of £6,000.
