All EMT reference-line cartridges feature a multi-facet diamond on sapphire cantilever. Our unique assembling technology makes it possible to tune the individual sound properties of this high-resolution transducer unit to maximum musicality.
EMT was founded in 1940 and became famous by manufacturing professional turntables in Lahr, Germany. In 1965, EMT launched the famous MC cartridge TSD 15, which was produced in many ten-thousand pieces and used in broad- cast studios all over the world.
In 1974, the portfolio was widened for hi-fi listeners and in 2006, the JSD series was introduced. Since 2014, all EMT cartridges are designed and manufactured in Switzerland.
EMT are enthusiastic about music reproduction and we feel sure that analogue technology harmonises best with the nature of music.
All pickups are built piece by piece in fine craftsmanship by our well educated team of watchmakers and assembling employees. Even if we are familiar with most modern designing and manufacturing equipment, personal experience in listening and manual skills are the real reason mak- ing our cartridges so precious and musical.
