Benz Micro LP s Phono Cartridge
Review by Harry Pearson, The Absolute Sound
"I don't think we yet have developed the language to capture what the Benz itself does‚Ä¶""The longer you listen to the cartridge—and the more it warms up—the more revealing it becomes in the sense of warmly inviting you in to listen more deeply to the textures, harmonics, and little subtleties that make up the basic foundations of the music itself."
"Everything you hear reproduced by the LP S-MR is translucent."
Review by Jonathan Valin, The Absolute Sound
"First, yes, there has been a changeover with the LP S. Benz has gone to a micro-ridge stylus (thus the "MR"). Second, so far I think the Benz LP S-MR is one of the two or three best cartridges I've had in my system. It is outstanding."
The latest Benz Micro LP s Phono Cartridge incorporates a higher mass brass frame for improved coupling to tonearms, evolved ruby square plate generator and Ebony body. Brass, an alloy of copper and tin, complements Ebony, materials used for building musical instruments. TheLP Shas 50% more mass than the previous model for enhanced vibrational and resonant characteristics, thus revealing greater dynamic contrasts, deeper bass and increased resolution from all records. The latestLP S Classwas the first Benz Micro to use the newMicro Ridgestylus, now found on all Benz Micro Swiss-made cartridges.
