• IQ 2

    The Audio Note IQ cartridges are the finest Moving Magnet designs currently available. A refinement of the established Moving Magnet principle, they offer an excellent combination of exceptional tracking ability, dynamic range and longevity, thanks to the extremely high quality components used for their construction. 

     

    The suspension of the IQ2 is stiffer than usually found in a Moving Magnet cartridge, and uses a cantilever formed from a specially hardened aluminium tube. 

     

    Careful attention is paid to the mechanical assembly of the generator, and for the stylus diamond, we chose the highly regarded Audio Note Type II.

     

    The complete assembly is removable, making replacement or upgrade a very simple and cost effective process. In fact, all of the IQ stylus assemblies are interchangeable, meaning that you could start with an IQ-1, and eventually replace the stylus assembly with the vastly superior version used in the IQ-III.

     

    It has been designed to be used with a Moving Magnet compatible phono-stage, with an input impedance of 47K Ohms. Total capacitance in parallel (including arm lead and amplifier capacitance) should not exceed 200pF. If other values of load resistance and capacitance are used, the frequency response of the cartridge may depart from the specified values.
