The new 17DX Karat Diamond is the first cartridge built using 'dispersion' theory. Its Micro-Ridge stylus and very short (1.7mm) solid diamond cantilever give a huge reduction in 'frequency dispersion', unmatched dynamics and a high frequency extension all the way up to 100kHz

As in the past the frequency response of the Karat 17DX at 20 to 20,000 Hz is perfectly flat. This means that tracing performance has high accurate and smoothy sound on high frequency range.

The Karat 17DX is developed while paying attention to main body material. As a result of trying to listening test of some prototype by using another material, we decide to use a machined brass. It makes the excellent frequency characteristics of the KARAT series further leap forward, high frequency range is improved without harshness.

Furthermore, by changing the conventional neodymium magnet to a samarium-cobalt magnet with low magnetic resistance, we can realise a clear sound field reproduction with fast sound rise and high resolution.
