TOPWING BLUE DRAGON UP CARTRIDGE REVIEW IS COMING


Another unique cartridge is coming from the land of the rising sun. Hiroshi Meguro, who was closely connected with the development of  TX - 1000 and  Nakamichi Dragon CT is also responsible for the Topwing Blue dragon cartridge, that uses coreless, straight flux method.

I'll write more about this interesting cartridge, that operates closer to MM with low output 0.2 mV, that is usually associated with MC cartridges.


Blue Dragon is designed, manufactured and assembled using Japan's state-of-the-art technology.
