Reference Ruby Cartridge From AVID

7th June 2019

This new Reference Ruby cartridge is the first of three low output moving coil cartridges to be released from the company 

There’s not a great amount of information on this one but here’s what I have thus far. The cantilever of the Reference Ruby is made from – you guessed it – solid Ruby with a Micro-Ridge Diamond stylus at the tip.

The moving mass has been reduced with less coil windings to, “…improve dynamics, but the output is a healthy 0.32mV due to the enlarged magnet assembly,” said the company.
