The Isolator, from The Cartridge Man, is a simple yet revolutionary device. Described by some as the biggest step forward in vinyl replay in 20 years. The Isolator is redefining the performance boundaries capable from the vinyl medium.
How can something so simple be so effective? The Isolator works by ameliorating the worst excesses of resonant disturbances at the point of source, allowing you to hear your cartridge perform as never before.
I can give the Cartridge Mans Cartridge Isolator a thoroughly deserved recommendation. I think, for me, this may be the accessory of the year! - Stewart Wennen Hi Fi World
Right now I would recommend the purchase of the Isolator to anyone with a vinyl front end priced over £300. - David Allcock Hi Fi News
My initial impression was that the improvement was so great that to achieve the same leap forward by changing, say, a pre-amplifier, would cost you in the region of thousands of pounds. - Geoff Husband: reviewer on www.tntaudio.com
Speaking of the MusicMaker/Isolator/Hadcock 242 combination: This combination allows tracking the complete transient envelope of each note with a new level of resolution and thus a new level of truer fidelity, that Id have to say is state-of-the-art. This is quite an achievement. Brilliant! - Paul Szabady, senior editor The Stereo Times
