This paper discusses the design of a high performance stereophonic pickup cartridge of the type using piezoelectric ceramic transducer elements. the discussion covers design factors affecting electrical performance characteristics, mechanical impedance effective at needle point and electrical impedance at output terminals. Results of extensive operating life tests are discussed.
