The wait is over. After two years in the making, we are delighted to announce the launch of Krystal, Linn’s latest moving coil cartridge.
Capturing even more detail from the record groove that its predecessor, Klyde, the Linn Krystal has been inspired by the design principles of Linn’s flagship Kandid cartridge.
Upgrade your cartridge to Krystal and you’ll hear a more musical performance from all your favourite records.
The Linn 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 the Linn Krystal was painstakingly selected to provide the most rigid bond possible to avoid any dampening effects.
Whether you specify the Linn 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.
