Linn Klyde Moving Coil Phono Cartridge

A high performance moving-coil cartridge for superb music retrieval.

In a moving-coil cartridge, coils connected to the stylus move in relation to fixed magnets to create electrical signals. Moving-coil cartridges generally create a lower output than moving-magnet cartridges which means they should be partnered with a phono pre-amplifier with suitable impedance loading such as the Linn Linto.

The Klyde cartridge features a highly sensitive transducer to optimise signal retrieval, and its precision suspension cantilever and nude diamond stylus ensure long life and minimum surface noise.

The precise assembly and gold-plated contacts of the Klyde cartridge protect the audio signal retrieved from vinyl recordings.

Like all Linn cartidges, Klyde is precision-engineered to protect cherished vinyl recordings whilst maximising your enjoyment of the music.

The Klyde’s strong alloy body allows secure fixing to either the Linn Ekos SE or Akito tonearms.
