The new Aladdin MK II is capable of truly remarkable separation and sound stage imaging at a level not previously achievable in a modestly priced design. The composite body and unique DEMS design work in tandem contribute to the Aladdin MK2’s ability to produce high-end performance from a moderately priced cartridge.

Attached to the new cantilever material is a tiny new super low mass “High Profile” Contact Line diamond developed for the new Aladdin MK II. This stylus traces more of the groove walls than a standard contact line, but avoids some of the alignment pitfalls that can occur with a high profile contact line design, allowing more azimuth alignment forgiveness than is normally possible with such designs.

The Aladdin MK II is manufactured by renowned cartridge manufacturer Soundsmith. Not only is this cartridge exceptional in it’s performance but it follows the Soundsmith tradition of a high value investment with full restoration and stylus rebuilding at 20% of its price when renewal is required. This can be carried out many times over for you.
