HIFI Statement (Google translated)
"The emotionally rousing, involving nature of the Fideles pickup can be very difficult to put into words and I have this in the form of a pickup in the price range, say, we've never experienced 2000 euros."
We proudly introduce the fideles, an all-new high-end, high output phono cartridge.
"fideles" derives from Latin / German and stands for “faithful, as well as agile and lively“.
Unusual in this price class, the fideles features a solid advanced Titanium Timet 1100 body of unparalleled energy transfer ability and unique combination of strength and light weight.
The generator system is a double-magnet - focused field - moving ferrum pipe - principle which gives a healthy high output of 5.5 mV.
Very easy handle for any phono stage and no need for a high-gain / moving coil phono input.
Any phono input with 35 to 50 dB gain and 47k to 100k impedance is fine.
The fideles’ Titanium body further features 3 rows of threads to allow perfect overhang in any headshell / tonearm.
The fideles produces a very dynamic, live-like, colorful, open, transparent and natural sound and performs solidly several steps above its price range.
It features very high trackability - above 90 µm … and is very easy to align.
It’s relatively low body mass allows perfect synergy with a very wide selection of low to medium-high mass tonearms.
It easily rivals - not just in terms of its CNC’d Titanium body - high end cartridges in the price range of $2000 to $3500 USD retail.
The fideles was designed to set a new standard for phono cartridges in the $1200 to $2000 USD price range in terms of technical capability, value for money and performance alike.
