The Vivo Red utilises a high-quality elliptical stylus mounted on an aluminium cantilever, and the special 7-nines (99.9999% pure) copper wire manufactured specially in Japan. The low internal impedance makes the cartridge less sensitive to load and therefore ensures compatibility with the widest range of preamps and transformers.
A special newly developed polycarbonate based resin, Lexan DMX, in Piano Black is used for manufacturing of the body. This revolutionary material improves rigidity and damping properties and also has a very durable scratch-resistant surface. Rigidity is an important performance character as the plastic-body serves as a basis for the generator.
