  • New Cartridges from Lyra

    Joe Harley of Audioquest, the official Lyra US distributor, recently informed me that the Atlas and Etna cartridges are now available in SL (0.25 mV) versions in addition to the standard 0.56 mV model. In addition, the Atlas is also available now in both stereo and mono models. The SL version is available upon special order and there is a 10% surcharge for this option.

      I guess the obvious question is how much lower did they get the internal resistance and ultimately will it benefit the SQ. Also going from .56 to .25 puts you in a different realm relative to compatible phono stages..

        Yes, with the SL versions you would need a phono stage with a lot of gain (over 60dB or more, depending on the rest of the system), and very low noise.

          The output voltage of my Etna is spec'd at 0.56 mV and my Etna SL is spec'd at 0.28 mV.

            Yes. That's exactly why Jonathan chose 0.56 mV. That signal level makes it compatible with a wide range of phonostages.

            The issue today is not with phonostage but line stage gain. Because of digital, most line stages or preamps are in the 10 dB realm as opposed to the days of 20-25 dB (my GAT is still an old school unit with 24.5 dB).
