We have one TriangleART Apollo Cartridge available at this price (original price $7,995). This cartridge was used only in the Jaguar listening space, off and on for a total of about 18 months. Still in excellent condition operationally and cosmetically. This is the cartridge that was playing as TriangleART received numerous awards for their room sound at audio shows. We're not likely to have another of these demo units anytime soon.
Jaguar is an authorized dealer for all TriangleART turntables, from their relatively modest and stylish Concerto to the 850lb Ultimate LE, which is truly one of the finest turntables anywhere in the world. Jaguar has used the TriangleART Signature SE turntable, along with their 12" Osiris tonearm, Apollo cartridge and TA-1 record clamp as our reference vinyl setup in the Jaguar Listening Studio.
A natural, high-quality diamond (V V S 1 grade or higher) is used to control the resonance along with fine copper wiring and a gold plated pin. The combination of speed and detail from the Zeus is inherited in the Apollo, but has gone far and beyond to incorporate even more detail, more transparency, more finesse, more air, and more musicality. With Apollo, music is crystal clear, without fogginess or haziness. Each note is sharp, crisp, and clean and full of body and authority. Louis Armstrong’s raspy voice can be fully appreciated, and distinguishing the cedar from rosewood from spruce in the bodies of acoustic guitars can be done with ease.

Best of 2012: Gold Sound Award, TriangleART Signature Stereo Times’ Publisher’s Choice 2012 Award goes to Tom Vu’s remarkable Reference SE Turntable. “In terms of looks and workmanship, the Triangle ART Ref SE is a work of art. Sonic-wise I would easily place it among the best available. That this level of analogue playback can be had for around 20K puts it on rare turf.”
AV Showrooms has selected TriangleART Signature for their Gold Sound Award, chosen for both price and quality considerations.

Audio Traveler: Review of our RMAF 2014 room
“Most obvious coolosity came from the TriangleArt platter spinners at the front of the room. TriangleArt has embraced a design school that teaches that success comes from excess.”
Positve Feedback: A 2nd review of the Signature Turntable and Osiris Tonearm
Pete Davey reviews the Signature Turntable and Osiris Arm: “I love to see the faces of those that enter my listening room and their sheer look of awe on their faces. I am proud to say that this is my turntable.”
Dagogo.com: Signature Turntable
The Triangle Art Signature has taken my analog experience to a completely new level. Coupled to the Clearaudio Stradivari cartridge and the Osiris tone arm (review to come), Music has taken a leap in importance and depth of understanding. Couple this sonic excellence to the otherworldly build quality and design and ultimately, there is nothing more that one could ask from a turntable system.”

“Listening to that track was among the best three minutes I had all weekend, so engaging that I set my notepad aside and just put the music first.”
