Benz Micro

Albert Lukaschek of Benz Micro and Garth Leerer of Musical Surroundings announce the continued development of the S Class phono cartridges. Led by the new flagship LP S “MR” cartridge, the new Ruby Z and ZH, Gullwing SLR and SHR cartridges, the S Class furthers the performance, selection and value of the Benz Micro line. The highlight of this continued evolution of the Benz cartridge line is the new MicroRidge stylus used on all S Class models from the ACE S to the LP S. We offer an industry leading program for upgrading previous Benz models to the new S Class series.

  1. Benz-Micro-Glider-S-Cartridges

    Benz Micro Glider S

    “It’s not just the superlative tonal balance and unstoppable trackability of the medium output (0.8mV) Glider SM that allows it to cop the Affordable Phono Cartridge of the Year honors, there’s also the Glider’s addictive inner detail and reassuring dash of warmth and pure lusciousness in the lower mids and bass. Don’t forget a presence and a treble range that are enriched with air and harmonic delicacy but steer completely clear of the dreaded etch and dryness of many mc’s, past and present. For those searching for the business end of a playback system that’s as musically expressive as it is honest, the Glider will set any system soaring.”

    Benz Micro EBONY

    £2,195.00

    “Soundstaging is wide; depth is excellent, albeit slightly foreshortened but with seamless layering. Apparently incapable of reproducing an unpleasant sound, this is plainly a pickup that casts a Lotuslike spell: You can forget yourself for hours in its seductive embrace. Good tracking.”
