Palladian X.O.

The Palladian cartridge embodies the true spirit of music that is evident in its design and performance.


The Palladian represents an endpoint in the evolution of phono cartridge performance and the design principles first established in the already formidable archon. The entire surface of its titanium alloy body is dimpled to break up resonances, giving it the lustrous appearance of mythical dragon scales. Considered to be one of the best – if not the best – top 10 cartridges.
