Shiraz Cartridge

The Shiraz is a high-end reference quality moving coil cartridge for audiophile record playing.

The Roksan Shiraz is a high-end cartridge that is capable of outstanding musical involvement and detail from its Gyger II stylus.

The Swiss made Gyger II has a super fine line profile, offering excellent tracking ability, stunning detail retrieval and low surface noise. The body is made from a solid aluminium alloy and fitted with a robust, broadcast-standard generator uniquely fixed to the body with three spikes, giving it precise alignment and coupling without using distortion-inducing adhesives.

Excessive cantilever movements at certain frequencies are damped by the capacitors mounted directly to the generator over the coil, where they accurately preserve the minute signal. Sonically, the frequency extremes are well integrated with a clear precise midrange; deep, agile bass and open and extended treble.
