Formerly the Statement and Reference Series, the new Timbre Series combines every next generation mid-range wooden phono cartridge into a striking and powerful family. Producing a warm, impactful, and accurate sound, this hand-built lineup delivers a signal with more control and accuracy than they ever have before.

The Opus3 was built specifically to bring the entry-level and the mid-range phono cartridges closer together, creating an even tighter ecosystem of cartridges. We worked on the Opus3 knowing we wanted to have a cost-effective wooden cartridge while at the same time taking advantage of the techniques and processes used in the higher-end models.If taking a step up in your turntable setup is on your to-do list, start here.
