The Mk 2 version has improved Suspension properties and revised purity coil windings The Transfiguration Phoenix reveals the music in your record grooves with a pure, liquid, utterly transparent sound, as free from artificiality as mountain spring water. Like all Transfiguration designs, the Phoenix incorporates an ultra-tight magnet coil coupling. The coils aren't merely close; they're literally inside the ring magnet, with coil-magnetic proximity of only a few thousandths of an inch. With dynamic mass minimised and coil saturation eliminated, Transfiguration cartridges maintain extremely fast and accurate response to groove movements. The Temper features a boron cantilever, newly developed for a natural sound, a low-mass Ogura PA stylus tip, and pure silver coils. "Here was a cartridge for the heart rather than the head, for while it proved it had an excellent way with detail retrieval from any record, it soon drew me straight into the musical performance itself.... At its best unstoppably groovy, intricate and lyrical, the Phoenix is a worthy addition to Transfiguration's range of compelling cartridges." (March 2008) Those who place timing high on their list of priorities will recognise the importance of the ring-magnet construction. When a timing (or phase) shift occurs in the complex field of sine waves that combine to re-create the sounds of harmonically rich instruments, e.g. voices, echoes (hall sounds). The possibility arises that not only will the temporal puzzle that is music, not quite be put back together properly but also due to phase-shift, that varies with frequency, may also lead to tonal inaccuracies, contrary to the desire of many who consider it to be a priority. (This is often the case with an inductor and is one reason why Transfiguration cartridges constantly strive for a coil with as low an impedance as possible), The cartridge has been deliberately and uncompromisingly designed as a top rate product. Mechanically it locates the cartridge on a plane, which provides least variation in tracking angle relative to tonearm movement. Technical details 1. Push pull damping A special compound has newly been meticulously designed and fabricated to provide total stylus/coil alignment and control. It's non-sensitivity to temperature change keeps the damping coefficient stable and improbes tracing accuracy. 2. Twin coils on the cantilever fulcrum Minimises dynamic mass and mechanical impedance, enabling instant, accurate reaction to every groove detail, including the ability to handle massive transients without overshoot or break-up. 3. Special alloy core for coil assembly This increases sensitivity by 25dB, improves signal to noise ratio eliminating a usual source of distortion. 4. Neodymium magnet Thanks to the much higher induced magnetism of the neodymium magnet in both the front & rear of the double ring magnets, the coil-turns of the generator have been reduced. It is very helpful to reduce the internal impedance to 4 ohms, which contributes to the improvement in the solidarity with transparency. 5. Low mass tip Ogura PA (3 x 30um) tip shares many of the advantages of the flagship MC cartridge "The Orpheus". Its function is to reproduce the character of the original recorded sound - not add or subtract its own deficiencies. 6.
