Audio MusiKraft of Canada has announced the release of its new ‘tuneable’ and ‘customisable’ Nitro series cartridges.

The complete kits are offered in two motor versions, Nitro 1 and Nitro 2, and in four shell alloys. Each kit includes an improved generator, three pre-selected optimal tonewoods, damping oil treatment and all the necessary installation tools in a newly designed wooden jewel box.

Nitro Series Cartridges

The Nitro series alloy models are as follow:

  • Aluminum (Al), clear or champagne anodized
  • Lithium (Li), mirror – hand polished
  • Magnesium (Mg), chemical conversion coated
  • Bronze (Br), gold plated
  • Bronze (Br) Collectors, six distinct patina artwork

Guy Pelletier of  Audio MusiKraft told us: “Beyond the stylus and the cantilever quality, the magnetic field is one of the fundamental properties of the physical cartridge environment. Our motors have an improved magnetic field and amalgam core composition to attain the best sound. We more precisely control how the array interacts within the generator. Most of our studies are based on stringent trial and error and A/B listening tests. Why the name Nitro? Well for starters it’s related to the improved motors and the shell shape. Secondly, we wanted to add some “Oomph” to better describe what we were seeking and what we were hearing. These are a few resulting key attributes that best reflect the series name: lively, spontaneous, impactful, realistic, tone right, vibrant, musical, and dare we say, downright impressive”.


The range features a fully modular design for interchanges between motor, shell, and wood as you like, a tonality and resonance controllable system, three voicing fine-tuning micro setscrews, five different geometric positions for overhang adjustment and a wide front clearance for easy view of the stylus. There are options to upgrade too.
