Roman Lebedev designs and manufactures his line of forward thinking moving coil cartridges in Ekaterinburg, Russia.
Known originally for his exotic T-8 and Y-12 designs, Roman has recently created models using trickle-down engineering that are knockouts in their price range. Combining powerful visceral presentation and energy with tonal and musical accuracy. The T and Y models are low compliance and quite heavy thus suited for high mass tonearms. Models use either line contact or MicroHD stylus, boron cantilevers, neodymium magnets in unique arrangements, ultra pure copper windings and list goes on.
ART models uses cross shaped core (Permendur alloy for the Dark, Permalloy for the Majestic and Mu Metal for the Deep) with 8n windings and a MicroHD stylus. Versions feature progressively higher outputs. 2017 Tone Audio Publishers Choice Award Winner!
ART line starts at $1175. Contact us to discuss!
Y12 / Y12S Feature 12 Neo magnets in an air core arrangement, 8n windings and stunning specification. S versions us MicroHD stylus, standard version uses line contact. 20-22 grams and low compliance make this a heavyweight in performance and person! Please contact us to discuss system requirements!

T-8 Is Mr. Lebedev’s statement design, using 8 Neo magnets in and air core arrangement. Expanding on the performance of the Y-12 with the best channel separation in the business! 23 grams and low compliance. We feel this offers best-in-world performance at quite a bit less cost than the current top class cartridge offerings elsewhere.
