TriangleART – Apollo Phono Cartridge
The TriangleART Apollo MC Cartridge is exquisitely crafted with onyx stone and uses some of the highest quality parts in the world. Each component is fine-tuned and adjusted to deliver a performance worthy of bearing the TriangleART logo. The utmost care is taken in the assembly of each cartridge.
Jaguar is an authorized dealer for all TriangleART turntables, from their relatively modest and stylish Concerto to the 850lb Ultimate LE, which is truly one of the finest turntables anywhere in the world. Jaguar has used the TriangleART Signature SE turntable and their Apollo cartridge as our reference vinyl setup in the Jaguar Listening Studio.
The Apollo uses a natural, high-quality diamond (V V S 1 grade or higher) to control the resonance along with fine copper wiring and gold-plated pins. The combination of speed and detail from the Zeus is inherited in the Apollo but has gone far and beyond to incorporate even more detail, more transparency, more finesse, more air, and more musicality. With Apollo, music is crystal clear, without fogginess or haziness. Each note is sharp, crisp, and clean and full of body and authority. Louis Armstrong’s raspy voice can be fully appreciated, and distinguishing the cedar from rosewood from spruce in the bodies of acoustic guitars can be done with ease.
“Tom – thank you for bringing back the real turntables, and putting a modern touch on them. I love to see the faces of those that enter my listening room and their sheer look of awe on their faces.”
“Most obvious coolosity came from the TriangleArt platter spinners at the front of the room. TriangleArt has embraced a design school that teaches that success comes from excess.”
Pete Davey reviews the Signature Turntable and Osiris Arm: “I love to see the faces of those that enter my listening room and their sheer look of awe on their faces. I am proud to say that this is my turntable.”
The Triangle Art Signature has taken my analog experience to a completely new level. Coupled to the Clearaudio Stradivari cartridge and the Osiris tonearm (review to come), Music has taken a leap in importance and depth of understanding. Couple this sonic excellence to the otherworldly build quality and design and ultimately, there is nothing more that one could ask from a turntable system.”
Parttimeaudiophile.com reviews the TriangleART room at the San Francisco California Audio Show.
“Listening to that track was among the best three minutes I had all weekend, so engaging that I set my notepad aside and just put the music first.”
TriangleART Signature – Stereo Times’ Publisher’s Choice 2012 Award goes to Tom Vu’s remarkable Reference SE Turntable. “In terms of looks and workmanship, the Triangle ART Ref SE is a work of art. Sonic-wise I would easily place it among the best available. That this level of analog playback can be had for around 20K puts it on rare turf.”
