About the brand

EMT – now celebrating it’s 75th year has been known for making broadcast studio grade cartridges with ultimate precision and stability. They still make their the cartridges by hand that fit many different arms with an extraordinary high quality grade of materials. With a history in making test equipment and transcription turntables this company has a very particular understanding of cartridge design and long term use.

In our experience, the TSD & JSD series sounds amazing on a variety of tables and tonearms, giving an incredible amount of silence, detail, warmth and flexibility in set-up and in handling many types of recordings and vinyl qualities. It will take your analogue rig to another level.
