Cartridges were the starting point for Phasemation. Their continued research and development in cartridge design has now brought to life their new "Ultimate" cartridge the PP-2000. The improvements made during the design of the new flagship have successfully culminated in a cartridge with even more incredible stereo imaging and spacial reproduction. PP-2000 further refines the already incredible mid and high frequency energy and great bass extension which Phasemation are known for.
Newly Designed Magnetic Circuit
Phasemation decided to re-examine the magnetic circuits of PP-1000. Keeping permendur as the magnetic material, the shape of the yoke is completely redseigned.
The newly shaped design allows them to even further increase efficiency and uniformity of the magnetic field.
Increased output has been achieved without increasing the weight of the moving mass in the generator system.
New design of vibration system
The vibration system has been newly designed in order to pursue the best balance of the sound quality. Detail retrieval and resolution is further improved by the carefully selected new damping material. The most noteable impact of the new dampening material is it's ability to reproduce even the most subtle atmospheric emotion in the music.
The highest quality materials for sound.
PP-2000 uses many of the materials used in the highly revered PP-1000.
- Magneto coil
- Pure iron coil bobbin, and
- Wire damper made of 6N oxygen-free copper wire
- Cantilever made of pure boron material
DLC（Diamond Like Carbon）is a generic name of carbon film produced with vapor phase synthesis utilising ion processing; DLC has a high rigidity and high electronic insulation similar to a diamond.
