After working up to 45 years for EMT continuously, the production team in Mahlberg got retired in summer 2014. The manufactory of the EMT cartridges has been moved step by step to HiFiction AG. In a long-lasting process, all know-how, equipment, and tooling have been carefully transferred to the young team in Switzerland. By July 1st, 2018, HiFiction AG takes over all EMT cartridge business incl development, production, repair service and international sales. The broadcast line for the EU market is still distributed by EMT Studiotechnik in Mahlberg.


HiFiction AG (Winterthur, Switzerland) was found- ed 2008 by Micha Huber and is known as the manufacturer of the famous Thales tonearms and turntables. We are enthusiastic about music reproduction and we feel sure that analogue technology harmonizes best with the nature of music.

All pickups are built piece by piece in fine craftsmanship by our well-educated team of watchmakers and assembling employees. Even if we are familiar with most modern designing and manufacturing equipment, personal experience in listening and manual skills are the real reason for making our cartridges so precious and musical.
