The latest version of the limited Van den Hul Colibri is the XGW African Black Wood Grenadille cartridge. This state of the art cartridge has replaced the platinum version called the XPW. Van den Hul has stopped producing platinum cartridges because it is very hard to get the right coils. Instead his new Flagship is the beautiful XGW African Black Wood Grenadille. This complete hand built cartridge has a very nice hand carved Grenadille wood body. This has very special acoustical qualities. The cartridge it self has been built from the best premium parts. A pure 24 k 6 layer gold coils and new powerful magnets gives it a easy 0,38 mV output. For the most MC phono amps a perfect match. Recommended load 50- 1 khz. So you may experiment yourself. Many tonearms will do very well with this cartridge, I recommend a elf. mass between 10 and 16 gram. The sound is extremely open and a great three dimensional picture. This cartridge is loved by many audiophiles worldwide. It comes with three years warranty, a perfect after sales service and a free 300 hour service after burning in. Retail price is 6800 Euro.
