The Akiva moving-coil cartridge represents Linns continued commitment to supplying the latest high specification technology to improve music reproduction from your collection of vinyl recordings
In a moving-coil cartridge, coils connected to the stylus move in relation to fixed magnets to create electrical signals. Moving-coil cartridges generally create a lower output than moving-magnet cartridges which means they should be partnered with a phono pre-amplifier with suitable impedance loading such as the Linn Linto.
The design of Linn's Akiva cartridge incorporates an advanced magnetic assembly structure to produce a higher output with noticeably better tracking and even lower distortion than any previous Linn cartridge.
The assembly structure in the Linn Akiva cartridge is constructed around a machined-from-solid alloy body for complete rigidity. The suspension mechanism in the Akiva supports hand-wound coils secured in a high-precision rigid assembly, terminated with gold contacts for superb signal transmission.
The Linn Akiva uses the finest nude diamond stylus and benefits from a ceramic boron cantilever for ultra low mass and extremely high rigidity. It also features a triple-point mounting system to ensure accurate coupling to a Linn tonearm, either the Ekos SE or Akito
Like all Linn cartridges, Linn's Akiva is precision-engineered to protect your cherished vinyl recordings whilst maximising your enjoyment of the music.
Linn's Akiva represents turntable cartridge engineering at its finest.
