The Pi cartridge has been developed together with Brinkmann's tonearms. With an ingenious mounting of the different parts, the case is highly resonance optimized and with its dynamic mass corresponds perfectly with their tonearms. Due to its neutrality it complements most other tonearms as well.

With the Pi cartridge Brinkmann have decided to use a Micro Ridge stylus, which has the best resolution in the finest recorded details and which guarantees for the most reliability. Naturally sounding in the midrange with good flexibility it gives a big room imaging in three-dimensionality on the highest level of top cartridges  
The stylus is mounted on a boron cantilever and drives a copper voice coil. Most attention was given to the rigidity of the magnetic circuit to prevent eddy currents. The MC cartridge has a similar output voltage as Brinkmann's EMT-ti. By this it drives preamp inputs in their best dynamic range. Due to its relatively high output voltage even on quite insensitive inputs the smallest signals will not be lost in the noise floor. The cartridge works perfectly on loads of 600 Ohms and matches best to their phono preamps. The cartridge has an own mass of 14 grams which leads to a high trackability with a tracking force of 1.8 to 2.0 ponds. The Pi will be delivered with special screws that optimize the coupling to the headshell.
