Benz Micro Cartridges

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.
