The Miyajima Zero is Miyajima’s best Mono cartridge. Unbeatable in its category, the Zero is offered with three possibilities of stylus (see below), one of them for 78rpm records. The difference between the Zero and the Premium BE II is in the slightly smaller axis size. The magnetic force passes through the coil by the axis of the non-magnetic  body of the cartridge. Since the magnetic force is not retained by the axis, the output falls down 0.3mV compared to that of the Premium BE, namely to the Zero’s output of 0.4mV. The Zero is a tour-de-force that every MONO record lover should have. Nothing will sound better.

Miyajima’s Mono cartridges are considered by the audio community to be among the best in the world. All his models are selected as Best Components by Stereophile magazine, a rather unique accomplishment in the industry.

Three possible styli*:

0.7 mil conical for post-1960 mono recordings
1.0 mil conical for pre-1960 mono recordings
3.0 mil conical for 78rpm records

*Both the 0.7 and the 1.0 will of course play any kind of mono record, but if your collection is a mix and you can’t own both, we recommend the 0.7 mil. The 1.0 mil should be favored by those whose collections consist predominantly of pre-1960 records. The 3.0 mil should be used only with 78rpm records.
