Zyx Cartridges Range
Regarded as one, if not the top cartridge manufacturers in the world, ZYX (pronounced “zikks”) is now establishing itself in the UK.
“The natural detail and extension is almost startling after years of living with Benzes and Koetsus and Clearaudios and Shelters and van Den Huls and whatevers. This is one major area that drives vinyl lovers to change cartridges to find that ideal balance between enjoying fine detail and life-like resolution, but without any artificial harshness and glare” Audio10 Review
