(By Ikeda)

Welcome to the world of Ikeda sound.  It is a common misconception that an entry level piece may be a consolation of a sort.  Let me assure you such is not the case in the world of Ikeda, nor it in the lines of our other cartridge makers.  It's a function of best assessing your arm and table and proceeding accordingly.  The 9TS is a stellar cartridge, and even more so when one considers just how much music is possible at this price point.  

Tonally it has the same musicality as the other MC cartridges in the 9 family. No compromises are made also during processing.

The 9TS 0.35mV is about twice as high output voltage compared to the 9TT so that it can be operated without any problems on lower cost phono preamps.
