The LPI V2 slips over the spindle of your turntable and rests on the label portion of the LP. This mechanism absorbs the micro vibrations that are present at the label area, which allows the cartridge to reproduce what is pressed on the record, without any additional resonant frequencies being added.
Fine details are more recognizable and lifelike. Stillpoints has extended the technology pockets, so the new LPI V2 will fit over both long and short spindles. There is an adapter (with wrench) included for extremely short spindles like on a Rega or Garrard 301.
