All of Michell's Cusis cartridges share the same moving coil design. At the heart of the cartridge is a samarium-cobalt magnet which is combined with pure iron to create a very stable magnetic field within the cartridge.
30μ pure copper wire is used to precision wind the cartridge coils onto an ultra-lightweight armature, which is mounted onto a specially designed damper.
The damper has been specifically designed to give the stylus assembly the perfect support, which ensures the stylus tracks the groove precisely.
The number of coils, resultant output and body material, have all been optimised for each model’s stylus assembly, to give the best possible audio output.
The construction of the cartridge has been carefully designed to eliminate vibration and resonance. The aluminium chassis is designed to absorb unwanted vibration and give a rigid platform to mount the cartridge parts.
The body materials, shapes and exterior patterns have also been designed to further reduce vibration and resonance, resulting in truly unrivalled levels of detail and neutrality.
"The Cusis S sounds neutral, but without being dull or matter of fact at any stage."
"It's able to reveal a weight and potency that no other offering here can come close to."
"The Michell Cususi S is very accomplished. It’s tonal realism, three dimensionality, superb low-end extension and emotional engagement is something that no other design stitches together as effectively."
