Air Tight PC-1 Supreme

Air Tight PC-1 Supreme


Stereo MC Phono Cartridge


The AirTight PC-1 Supreme is another cartridge with real ‘provenance’. A classic favourite among audiophiles around the world, the PC-1 Supreme takes the virtues of Coda and extends them further. Years of development have resulted in a cartridge that embodies an optimal combination of low impedance and high output.

The new Hi-µ core material has been described as ‘epoch-making’ with respect to its performance. Known as ‘SH-µX’, it offers high µ characteristics which enable it to synergise with high-efficiency magnetic circuitry.

The wiring is at an optimum thickness to assist in reducing the number of coils thus achieving astoundingly low internal impedance. The resulting expanded bandwidth & extended dynamic range present a clearer life-like soundstage, whilst improvement in transient & phase characteristics reproduces ultra-heavy bass with very high resolution.

AirTight cartridges are renowned for reproducing music with great energy and extension. The PC-1 Supreme has forged a reputation as a cartridge with great all-round strengths and no weaknesses, which is why it graces the turntables of many discerning music lovers. Ultra-versatile and super capable, the PC-1 Supreme is one of the best investments that can be made in the enjoyment of a vinyl collection.
