DDT - II Special

Detail, Depth and Timbre, that's what DDT stands for! It is based on the very first M.C. Cartridge A.J. van den Hul ever built. The term "special" in this case indicates that some major improvements have been made, e.g. a thicker frontpole and an extra small magnet, both further enhancing its resoltution capabilities and output voltage. Output voltage for this cartridge is 0,65 mV per channel. Equipped with its VDH-I stylus it has a frequency range of 5 - 50.000 hz.. This cartridge gives excellent value for money and will not embarrass any high-end installation.

A custom handbuilt moving coil cartridge with VDH-type 1 tip, boron cantilever, matched crystal silver-wire coils and 0.65 mV/channel.

The designation “Special” in this cartridge’s name indicates important improvements over its previous version:

  • The cartridge is equipped with a thicker frontpole and an extra small magnet, both further enhancing its resolution capabilities and output voltage.
  • The cartridge’s name DDT stands for Depth, Detail and Timbre.
