Product Description

Excalibur Blue
Classic MC system with low output voltage.
Stylus: natural diamond with Shibata needlework.
For connection to MC-compatible phono inputs.

Since spring 2017 TAD has, with Excalibur, a small, but fine family of MC pickups in the program, which has an excellent price / sound ratio and also fits so well with TAD. The well-known product designer and developer Helmut Thiele (among others Thorens) as well as a renowned Japanese master and his pickup manufacture (in Japan), whose name we are not allowed to name for legal reasons, were used to implement the project.

In cooperation with Helmut Thiele, who also designs the resonance-optimized housings, the TAD measurement technicians, who detect every kind of resonance, and not least TAD itself, which filter out the sonically best variant in long listening sessions, emerges the final design.

Excalibur is a true TAD product.
