The Ruby 2 cartridge weighs only 9.6 grams, making it ideal for a wide range of tonearms, including todays state-of-the-art, and vintage models lacking the energy control, bearing designs, or counter-weight range.
"This low-output moving coil's easy tonal character highlights no single virtue at the expense of others. It's got fine harmonic, ambient, and spatial resolution, excellent tracking, sweet and mellow textures, and it plays down groove grit without a hint of concealment." - Art Prerrer, The Absolute Sound
