Superseding both the Classic and Classic LE, the Cartridge Man MusicMaster Phono Cartridge not only combines the best qualities of the earlier units, but also has been further refined by the addition of a unique micro-stylus with an exceptionally sophisticated profile as well as other improvements regarding the integrity of the body structure and coil insulation. The advantages of the new design are very noticeable; higher resolution allows more information and detail to be preserved in the audio quality while excellent sound-stage and greater dynamics facilitate the overall improvement of signal-to-noise ration. Supplied with the Cartridge Man's Isolator.

The Music Maker Classic Limited Edition is a refinement on the Music Maker Classic, designed to offer giant beating high end performance that exceeds the Classic. It still uses pure silver hand wound conductors, but uses substantially different materials for both the cantilever and the stylus, as well as changes to the styli cutting angle,
Couple all of these with the improvement the std classic brought over the Music Maker MkIII Leonard Gregory has managed to raise the performance bar still higher. As a moving Iron Cartridge it has none of the draw backs of low output moving coils, and yet offers the listener the chance to experience music in a truly sublime way. No wonder those reviewers and early customers lucky enough to hear this wonder are describing it as one of the finest pick up cartridges made.
The Music Maker Classic Limited Edition with its solid Sapphire cantilver, which imparts incredible stiffness and rigidity not found on other caridges anyway near this price point. The fitted dimond stylus is a fraction of the size of the ones found on the Classic and the Music Maker Mk III. Allowing the stylus to track deeper in the grove, giving in our tests a much quieter surface noise during playback of the recording.
