The new Pure AA designs from this long-established Italian company include the heavily re-designed Puccini and Maestro Anniversary integrated amplifier are quite an advance in sound over their original versions.

These cartridges work on a completely different principle to conventional MM or MC cartridges. Instead of a signal generated by electromagnetic force the optical cartridge uses a beam of light to detect the stylus motion. Removing the mass of magnets or coils, and by using tiny optical parts, the optical system resolves the smallest stylus motions with greater accuracy. Music is reproduced more correctly, nuances and the finest details revealed more easily.
