ABOUT

The AMG Teatro moving-coil phono cartridge represents the cumulative work of the AMG design team and an international group of manufacturers. The Teatro’s special 2-piece titanium body provides a superior strength-to-weight ratio and is dimensioned to minimize resonance and reflected energy. Its internal construction is radiused and includes a fixture for rigid mounting of the MC generator. 

The Teatro generator is an extremely efficient electro-mechanical design, using a separate coil for each channel for superior channel separation. The coils are wound with Ohno cast (OCC) mono-crystal high-purity oxygen-free copper wire. Coil impedance is 12Ω for increased signal-to-noise, allowing the use of many phono stages and step-up devices. Powerful Neodymium magnets are combined with a special Permedur yoke consisting of cobalt and iron to produce an output of .4mV at 5cm/sec.  The solid boron cantilever with a diameter of .26mm is fit with a line contact stylus (40 x 7µm) and the dynamic compliance is 18 x 10-6 cm/dyne for enhanced tracking. 

The distinctive green Tiodize Type III titanium body is tapped for 2.5mm mounting screws and the output pins are gold-plated PC-OCC (Pure Copper Ohno Continuous Casting). The Teatro stylus guard is machined aluminum and features an adjustable o-ring resistance fit.
