'The Most Musically Convincing Cartridges In The World'

BASIS COMMENTS ON MY SONIC LAB

As a designer and producer of state of the art turntables and tonearms I seek out the finest associated equipment with which to test my designs. It was in a search for my own personal reference cartridge that I came upon MY Sonic Lab. My goal had been to find a cartridge that combined state of the art detail, transparency, and dynamics with a natural frequency response. I cannot enjoy listening and evaluating equipment using any cartridge that has the too common over-emphasis on the upper mid and high frequency ranges. Before hearing the MY Sonic Lab cartridge I had already evaluated most of the highly acclaimed cartridges in my effort to find a reference cartridge. Within moments of first listening to a MY Sonic Lab Eminent cartridge it was clear that this cartridge was conveying the essence of the music to a greater degree than I had previously experienced.
 

Being a designer, but not seeking to be an importer or distributor for any other audio company’s products, I had to seek out the man behind the glory of this cartridge for my own personal interest. I made contact with the company and although my intent was to speak “designer to designer” about my appreciation for the accomplishments the cartridges represent, the end result was a mutual agreement whereby Basis Audio became the MY Sonic Lab importer for the North American markets.
 

I am confident that you will agree that MY Sonic Lab cartridges deliver an extraordinary musical experience.
