Acoustical Systems er kjent for sine superprodukter i High End sjiktet innenfor tonearmer og pickuper.
Jeg har hatt Axiom tonearmen i et par år og har testet alle pickupene fra Acoustical Systems i denne. Har man et godt platespilleroppsett så bør disse lyttes til.
I dag så leverer Acoustical Systems følgende pickuper:

Archon - 29.990,- 0,5mV
Astron - 44.990,- 0,5mV
Aiwon - 74.990,- 0,28mV
Palladian - 89.990,- 0,33mV

Og som en nyhet er de nå kommet med en Moving Iron 6,0mV. The Fideles:

We herewith proudly introduce the fideles - an all-new high-end phono cartridge.
„fideles“ derivates from Latin / German and stands for „faithful, - as well as agile and lively“.

Unusual in this price class, the fideles features a solid advanced Titanium Timet 1100 body of unparalleled energy transfer ability and unique combination of strength and light weight.
The generator system is a double-magnet - focused field - moving ferrum pipe - principle which gives a healthy high output of 5.5 mV.
Very easy handle for any phono stage and no need for a high-gain / moving coil phono input.

Any phono input with 35 to 50 dB gain and 47k to 100k impedance is fine.
The fideles’ Titanium body further features 3 rows of threads to allow perfect overhang in any headshell / tonearm.

The fideles produces a very dynamic, live-like, colorful, open, transparent and natural sound and performs solidly several steps above it’s price range.
It features very high trackability - above 90 µm! - and is very easy to align.
It’s relatively low body mass allows perfect synergy with a very wide selection of low to medium-high mass tonearms.

It easily rivals - not just in terms of it’s cnc’ed Titanium body - high end cartridges in the price range of 2000 to 3500 US$ retails.

The fideles has a world-wide retails price target of around US$ 1200 / EURO 990.

The fideles was designed to set a new standard in the US$ 1200 to 2000 - price range of phono cartridges - in terms of technical input, value for money and performance alike.
