The S-Class models of the Wood Body SL (low-output), SM (Medium) and SH (High), the Glider SL, SM, SH, and the ACE SL, SM, SH all incorporate the Benz Dynascan system with a Gyger S stylus coupled to improved generators using new coil windings and refined pole pieces/damper designs. Albert Lukaschek began researching increased performance and uniformity of his cross-coil designs while developing the Benz Ebony H, L and TR models. Experimenting with the length of the solid Boron cantilever revealed how the elasticity of this very stiff material affected compliance and trackability. Development of a grooved rear pole piece for countersinking the o-ring damper, first introduced on the Benz Ruby square plate cartridges, was then adapted to the cross-coil designs, given their lower contact area and damping characteristics. The lower mass coils and matched cantilevers of the new S-Class retain their real world output levels and with their improved styli, offer heightened performance. These cartridges yield one of the best performance/value ratios in cartridge market, regardless of output level.
