Designed and hand-crafted to our own exacting specifications by BENZ in Switzerland, the ZENE is a highly sophisticated low-output moving-coil cartridge with performance well beyond its price category. It is equipped with the newest Fritz-Geiger-S-type stylus, precision bonded to a 5.5mm solid boron cantilever. It also includes the improved pole piece featuring a machined insert for the O-ring damper, resulting in greater mechanical linearity in its suspension. Trackability is truly excellent, even with a rather lowish optimum tracking force of 1.7 mN. A “real world” output voltage of 0.4 mV and an internal impedance of 12 ohm make the ZENE universally suitable for most MC phono stages. By the way, ‘zene’ simply means ‘music’ in Hungarian….
