The cartridge is one of the main components of sound when playing records, cartridge selection is one of the real thrill of analog audio fans. However, if the screws are not selected or installed properly, you can not fully bring out the performance you can achieve. For example, generally aluminum screws are low in rigidity and can not be said to be the best in terms of sound quality.
The industry’s first new material “Carbon graphite nylon washer” becomes the key part of SCR-L. This washer combines both metal and resin characteristics, that is, moderate slipperiness and cushioning property, it reduces screw spinning and enables stronger tightening. This improves the adhesion between the cartridge and the head shell, eliminating the rattling of the cartridge, which causes sound quality deterioration. The washer has an outer diameter of 4.7 mm, which is larger than the outer diameter of the screw head / nut, thereby increasing the contact area to the cartridge / head shell. Distributing the bearing pressure of the screw reduces deformation and collapse around the cartridge, making screws less susceptible to loosening.
