THE CONDOR

A huge leap beyond the pond:

“Up there, high in the sky, she graciously glides, her sharp senses capturing the entire soundscape, never missing any detail”

A.J. van den Hul’s newly created phono cartridge, named The CONDOR, is a very innovative moving coil design specifically made for very high replay quality. It is the first cartridge in the world that doesn’t have any mechanical signal transfer to the tone arm or the other way around: No sound coloration and no background noise!

Descripción

The CONDOR is based on The FROG and uses the design philosophy of The COLIBRI: take away from the body what you don’t need, thus making the cartridge lighter and with fewer materials to resonate and influence the sound in a negative way. The CONDOR has no front-pole and employs a very strong magnet. The suspension is an advanced three rubber system. While being more robust in construction and having a healthier output, The CONDOR exhibits the same highly refined sonic properties as The COLIBRI: a very high resolution combined with an extremely good spatial reproduction. The CONDOR is made for many different arms without any problem. Tracking is excellent and the top-end is very smooth.

The CONDOR is built in a number of versions:

XC-LO Version: (X = cross shaped modulator, C = matched crystal Copper wire coils, LO = Low Output)

Low output all-round model
Output voltage: 0.25 mV/channel
Types available: XCP-LO and XCM-LO
XC-HO Version: (X = cross shaped modulator, C = matched crystal Copper wire coils, HO = High Output)

High output, most suitable for jazz and pop music
Output voltage: 0.55 mV/channel
Types available: XCP-HO and XCM-HO
XG-LO Version: (X = cross shaped modulator, G = matched crystal Gold wire coils, LO = Low Output)

Low output, most suitable for classical music
Output voltage: 0.25 mV/channel
Types available: XGP-LO and XGM-LO
XG-HO Version: (X = cross shaped modulator, G = matched crystal Gold wire coils, HO = High Output)

High output, most suitable for jazz and pop music
Output voltage: 0.45 mV/channel
Types available: XGP-HO and XGM-HO
