The CONDOR is a top performance custom handbuilt moving coil phono cartridge. A crossbreed of Van den Hul's The FROG and The COLIBRI (two of the world’s finest cartridges) featuring the best of both and available in a wide range of versions matching the personal demands of the customer.
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. Hi & Low Output Versions available.Read Less
