Michell Engineering Cusis M Cartridge

£2,300.00 inc.VAT

Michell are delighted to introduce their own range of reference class moving coil cartridges which have been designed from the ground up to uncover details in your favourite music that have previously gone unheard.

All of the 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.

Michell Engineering Cusis M Cartridge

The Michell Engineering Cusis M is the flagship reference class phono cartridge, combines truly unrivalled levels of detail with a completely neutral presentation, so all you hear is the music! 
  • Ultra-precise Microline stylus
  • Boron Cantilever
  • Reduced coil mass
  • Class leading frequency response
  • Large aluminium chassis
  • Carbon loaded, resonance dampening body
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 unwanted vibration and resonance. Each cartridge has a large aluminium chassis to which all the parts are affixed. This 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.

About Michell Engineering

Right from their very humble beginnings, Michell have set out to design and build products that offer true innovation to the audio world whilst still retaining the personal touch that was instilled into the company by their founder – the late John Michell.

John began his engineering career when he served an apprenticeship with Finchley Autos in the early fifties. Deciding to start his own business, he set up in his garden shed and quickly moved to a small industrial unit in North London. Working as a jobbing engineering company, he soon outgrew the premises so, during the mid ‘60’s, moved to Borehamwood.

Although very much an engineering company, John also made scale models and it was during this time that he met Stanley Kubrick and built the space ship ‘Discovery’ for the film 2001 – Space Odyssey, later to become the inspiration for the GyroDec.
