Product Outline and Concept

We release PP-300, the model of 10th anniversary of our brand establishment, as the new basic model. It has 'the midrange-treble-part with high freshness', 'the resonant bass part' which the conventional MC cartridge could not realize, and also 'space expression ability', because the knowhow of our PP-1000, the Pasemation flagship, has been applied.

Main feature

1. Feed-back of PP-1000 magnetic circuit technology

To the magnetic circuit structure the technology of PP-1000, the flagship model, is applied; and by refining materials and manufacturing and finishing cost advantage has been enhanced. Furthermore, by changing to samarium-cobalt magnet, the recreation of excellent feeling of sound field and freshness has been successfully realized, which has been difficult for our conventional P-3.

2. Inheriting the Body for High Quality Audio Sound

We inherit duralumin previously-well-acknowledged against P-3 as the materials of base and body. Furthermore, DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) *1) coating is conducted; thereby, the structure excellent at rigidity and vibration-damping characteristics is realized.

*1) DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) is a generic name of carbon film to be produced with vapor phase synthesis utilizing ion processing; and the high rigidity and high electric insulation similar to a diamond are provided for it.

3. Inheriting the Materials for High Quality Audio Sound

We inherit the following materials for high quality audio sound well-established in PP-1000 and others: Cantilever made of pure boron material well-acknowledged previously, magneto coil made of 6N oxygen-free copper wire, pure iron coil bobbin and others.
