Shelter

Meillä on muutamakin japanilainen MC-äänirasioita valmistava tuotemerkki valikoimassa, mutta kaikille näille on tilauksensa. Yksi äänirasiavalikoimamme mielenkiintoisimmista on eittämättä Shelter. Sen MC-äänirasioiden sointi on jo alkaen -mallista (301 II) lähtien neutraali, mutta varsin innostava ja musiikille oikeutta tekevä.
Shelter -rasioista ei oikeasti keksi moitittavaa vaikka oikein miettisi. Silti, kun vaihdetaan vaikka AVID Volvere SP soittimessa olevaan SME 309 -varteen Shelter 301 II:n tilalle seuraava malli, Shelter 501 II, on lopputulos entistä konkreettisempi ja asiat saavat enemmän body-fiilistä, kuinkaan neutraaliuden kärsimättä yhtään. Maagista?
-Tule ja totea asiat omilla kuuloelimilläsi! 🙂

Shelter Harmony

Shelter’s flagship model, the Harmony, employs dry carbon fiber (CFRP) for the body shell. CFRP delivers a superb acoustic characteristic and is an ideal match with the newly designed motor assembly. This combination is capable of delivering a great musical reproduction even on records with less than optimal recordings.
Dry carbon, unlike wet carbon, is designed in layers and unique molding. Harmony, utilizing the CFRP, has a compression rating of 60-tons whereas the conventional process is only 24-tons. The benefit is that the resonant frequency of CFRP is outside of any audible frequency. In addition, it provides a high degree of internal damping along with superb isolation characteristics that protects the body from extraneous vibration and noise. Each of these design features ensure that the Harmony produces no coloration, and is whisper quiet and is extraordinarily sensitive to even the most demanding and subtle musical passages.

Shelter 411 Type II

The Model 411 II is mono-functional stereo MC transformer to match with MC cartridges with internal impedance (DCR) of less than 15 ohm. The impedance tolerance is 25 ohms. The transformer is a toroidal design that applies the toroidal winding to 0.05mm thickness of supermalloy, layered ring-core. The core volume has an external diameter of 25mm, internal diameter of 16mm and height of 10mm. The termination of the wire is directly connected to in/out terminal. Therefore, the high efficiency of toroidal transformer realizes extremely low loss structure. It delivers the signal from the cartridge without coloration to the phono- terminal directly. Model 411II is a modified version of Model 411 and it has 32dB of step-up ratio of approximately 40 times.
