- The world’s first and only “Tunable” and "Customizable" phono cartridge -

 

This Audio MusiKraft shell is specifically designed for Denon DL-103 or 103R phono cartridges. It can be purchased nude as a starting point or customized to one's preference.

We have chosen this alloy as it is widely used, affordable and well suited for the cartridge improvements we are looking for. Aluminum can be easily machined, is lightweight and numerous corrosion treatments and finishes are available. Given that production costs are lower than other materials, there is added value for the customer, making this shell our entry level.
