This cartridge has been rebuilt at the Garrott Lab. It now features a boron cantilever and Weinz parabolic diamond tip.
The new range of Mission 773 cartridges consists of three impressive moving coils.
Throughout the range, rare and esoteric materials have been used and these products incorporate many high-technology features.
With stylus pressure exceeding several tons per square metre and involving accelerations in thousands of Gs, Mission designs pay special attention to cantilever structures and the important role of diamond quality, it's profile, orientations, geometry and polish.
Equal care has been taken in minimisation of moving mass resulting in ultra fast response times.
Problems associated with traditional rubber dampings of cantilevers with the resulting hysteresis have been successfully avoided.
Channel separation has been maximised and all forms of distortion significantly reduced.
The range consists of the low output 773 LC, the high output 773 and the top of the line 773 SM.
Manufactured for Mission Systems by the world famous cartridge manufacturer Kiseki in Japan.
