The best sound quality achievable for traditional vinyl playback

The CLUB boasts the best specifications and best sound, making it an ideal choice for Club DJs in any environment: studio, broadcast or club.

  • The CLUB features a Special-Elliptic stylus that allows for detailed sound quality: Special-Elliptic stylus fits better in the groove and therefore has more contact area with the groove itself, extracting more intricate details, than is possible with a spherical diamond.
  • The CLUB’s 8 mV output voltage requires less gain from the preamps, providing cleaner sound reproduction and less susceptibility to feedback in live environments.
  • The CLUB offers an outstanding platform for archival and sampling.
Single vs Twin

Here's what you get for either a Single or Twin

  • A SINGLE consists of one cartridge and stylus in a plastic tray
  • A TWIN consists of two cartridges, two styli, one flight case and a stylus brush
