Liquid, powerful, delicate, transparent… and teeming with life.

We love this cartridge!

Transfiguration Proteus is their flagship moving coil phono cartridge, a product of sonic brilliance and a major step forward in analog performance. 

Transfiguration worked hard to improve the already stunning Orpheus L and Proteus is a major step closer to the ideal where the ultimate audio components will be those that simply don't seem to exist - so good that they add nothing and subtract nothing. The 'straight wire with gain' situation.

The biggest strength of the Proteus is its lack of character, but herein lies its strength. The better the system that it is used with, i.e. the faster, more tonally and transiently seamless, dynamically unlimited, with extended frequency range... the more it will reveal within the music and you will continue to discover previously hidden information on your records.

One of the finest cartridges we've ever sold or had the pleasure of listening to.
