Benz Micro Wood Zebra Cartridge


Moving Coil


The S Class models of theWood SL(low),SM(medium) andSH(high), all incorporate the BenzMicro Ridgestylus coupled to improved generators using new coil windings and refined pole pieces/damper designs. Benz Micro's Albert Lukaschek began researching increased performance and uniformity of his cross-coil designs while developing the Benz Ebony H, L and TR models. Experimenting with the length of the solid Boron cantilever revealed how the elasticity of this very stiff material contributed to compliance and tracking. Development of a grooved rear pole piece for countersinking the o-ring damper, first introduced on the Benz Ruby square plate cartridges, was then adapted to the cross coil designs, given their lower contact area and damping.
