" ...The Classic’s balance of natural timbre, realistic
stereophony, and simply spell-binding replication of the What
and How of instrumental playing leads to a musically
communicative immersion into the art of the music that is
unparalleled in my 34-year history with phono cartridges...'.
"...The MusicMaker Classic is the exemplar for communication of
the artistic intent, musical expressiveness, and true-to-life
sonic reproduction of musical performances. As such, its value
is priceless. Its price, allied to the fact that ancillary
components of roughly similar price will reveal its stupendous

perversities of The High End."
... the MusicMaker Classic is a true masterpiece. It is a
privilege to introduce this wonderful cartridge to all music
lovers. It is a classic in all senses of the word.
