The latest addition to the award winning EMT Jubilee MC-Cart Series

Just in time for its 77 th anniversary, EMT will present the new JSD VM MC Cart:

The latest addition to the award winning EMT Jubilee series is - beside the JSD Platinum and the Lady in Black (S75) – the third pickup with EMT’s exclusive white sapphire cantilever. From the total 47 components of the new gray / gold JSD VM cart, 2 are particularly worth mentioning:

The two different cylinder rods are made of low respectively very high density material and will be alternatively integrated in the JSD VM cartridge housing. They can be exchanged quickly and easily on the fly and thus ensure different weight and mass ratios. This variable cart mass (VM) of a total of 10 or 13 g allows a flexible, effective and optimal fine tuning to almost every tone arm.

EMT J-Head Shell

Originally designed to use the Jubilee JSD-series cartridges together with EMT tone Arms, the J-Head Shell offers also the possibility to use non EMT cartridges on EMT tone arms ... if they fit dimensionally into this 32mm Studio/A-Shell. A so called “i” version is also available with international connection.

The handle can be used either on the left or on the right hand side. So it can be comfortably used for a second arm which is maybe mounted at the rear of a turntable.
