Lyra’s exquisite phono cartridges are the beautiful result of a collaboration between a remarkable trio: Jonathan Carr, Yoshinori Mishima, and Stig Bjorge.
Lyra cartridges are built 100% from the ground up in Japan, with the artisanal electronics craftsmanship for which Japan is revered.
The Lyra family of transducers reveals an unprecedented level of texture, transparency and dynamic contrast from an analog music collection, ensuring the listener's maximum immersion and emotional involvement in the music. The Etna cartridge won both The Absolute Sound and Stereophile's Product of the Year awards. Lyra products are not cheap, but deliver extraordinarily musical performance.
