Karma-AV is proud to introduce Mobile Fidelity’s UltraGold Moving Coil phono cartridge to the UK’s vinyl replay fans. Precision crafted in Japan and voiced by Spiral Groove founder Allen Perkins, the UltraGold MC offers analogue lovers the exceptionally wide frequency response, tonal richness, lifelike separation, and true-to-the-source faithfulness of a class-leading audiophile MC design.

Guided by proprietary inputs from Allen Perkins, superlative manufacturing unites UltraGold MC’s nude Shibata diamond profile stylus and boron cantilever with a neodymium magnet and Permendur yoke, housed within an ultra-low resonance aluminium/brass extrusion to deliver palpable low-end energy, high transient responsiveness, and compelling openness and transparency from vinyl discs. In essence, UltraGold MC exists to liberate the astonishing musical glory of Mobile Fidelity Original Master Recordings and other reference pressings.

For all its exceptional audiophile endowment, UltraGold MC is easy to set up in virtually any system: the threaded cartridge body permits mounting to a head shell or integral tonearm with just two screws: no bolts or nuts required.

Developed with the same philosophy that has produced world-famous Mobile Fidelity reissues over four decades, UltraGold MC promises to set the gold standard of MC cartridges in its class.
