Product Description

Linn Krystal spent two years in development and uses the design principles of Linn's leading moving coil cartridge Kandid to capture the minute changes in the record groove, letting you hear every musical detail.

Krystal features a similar approach to minimising mass as Kandid, using a nude design to give the cartridge less inertia so it can react more quickly to the changes in the groove. It also uses the triple-point mounting system for a solid connection to the tonearm headshell, while the aircraft grade 7075 aluminium chassis provides a lightweight, stiff and stable platform for the generator. Even the adhesive used on Krystal was painstakingly selected to provide the most rigid bond possible to avoid any dampening effects.

Whether you specify Krystal on your current turntable or buy it as part of an Akurate LP12, you're guaranteed to enjoy a more musical performance from all your vinyl.

    What can I say? The detail is stunning without losing any balance with the rich tonal mids and lows but still detailed placing of instruments is fantastic. Top notch high end MC!

    I’ve just replaced my wonderful Dynavector 20x2 with Linn Krystal and have to say it produces a wonderful dynamic and open soundstage, with some fantastic minute details, the timing is excellent, and my only negative is that it costs a lot of money. That said if you want to hear your vinyl in a new light , then save up, you will not be disappointed just a great cartridge.
