Benz Ebony S Moving Coil Cartridge

We are able to ship to United States - View Rates


The Benz Ebony series are designer Albert Lukaschek’s ultimate realization of his cross-coil generator based cartridges. Each use the best materials such as Ebony wood body, MicroRidge stylus and the most advanced coil windings for their application. The Ebony H (2.5mV at 3.54cm/sec) is the best high output moving coil ever made, ideal for MM type phono stages, low gain tube phono stages and AV systems. The Ebony L (.26mV at 3.54cm/sec, 5ohm coil impedance) optimizes with high gain phono stages (>60dB) with input impedance of less than 300 ohms or when using step-up transformers. The Ebony TR is designed specifically for step-up transformers and has an ultra-low output of .1mV and impedance of 1 ohm.

How do they sound?

Jack Roberts in Dagogo writes about the Ebony TR:

“The Benz Ebony TR cartridge is one of the world’s very best phono cartridges. It also one of the world’s lowest output moving coils; some have even dubbed it a ‘tiny-output’ moving coil. It is housed in a vented case made from aged Ebony, just like the body of the famous Benz LP…The Ebony TR let’s me enjoy the natural sound and tonality of vocals and acoustical instruments in a way I have rarely experienced, except for live music.” Read more
