The Rainier is a venerable cartridge which expands on the company’s legacy for smooth, natural sound reproduction in its affordable cartridge models. After years of development, the Rainier features an integrated body and generator system that significantly reduces internal resonances. Finished with an expertly shaped elliptical stylus, the Rainier is capable of extracting even the more nuanced musical details.

The Rainier utilises the same cartridge body as the Olympia and Moonstone, allowing for easy stylus upgrades as your listening system progresses.
