Stylus Specifications

Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the stylus will be able to reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). The larger the range the better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
10 - 55,000 Hz
Output Voltage (@ 1 kHz)
This the is rated output voltage of the stylus a 1 kHz. It is rated in mV.
5 mV
Channel Separation (@ 1 kHz)
Also referred to as crosstalk. The amount of interference on one stereo channel caused by the leaking of the other stereo channel. The higher the rating in decibels (dB), the better the Channel Separation.
30 dB
Load Impedance
This is the impedance load for the turntable stylus.
47,000 ohms

Good Value, but.....

September 17, 2013

If you want high output and good treble, don't buy this cartridge, It leaves a lot to be desired. I had to put back my old cartridge. Sorry but I don't recommend it!
