“As good as the AT PC-1 is, this new, considerably pricier moving-coil cartridge from Air Tight is substantially better. Like the PC-1, the Supreme is a model of low internal impedance and high energy. Killer good on transients top to bottom, with phenomenal grip and definition in the low bass, it is also exceptionally lifelike in the midband, with even more of the gorgeous density of tone color, high resolution, and superior soundstaging that made the PC-1 one of JV’s (Jonathan Valin) mc references. A top contender for best mc.” – Jonathan Valin, The Absolute Sound, October 2008
“No other moving-coil design that I’ve heard boasts the refinement, punch, and detail of the Air Tight. Encased in a gold body, it represents the state of the art. On LP after LP, the Air Tight excavated a wealth of information in LPs that had previously been obscured by noise or distortion. The sheer vividness and speed of the cartridge is overwhelming. Guitar plucks and voices, for example, emerge with startling precision and force. But it isn’t speed harnessed to abrasiveness. The Air-Tight sounds beautifully bloomy and natural and LPs that you might have thought were compressed turn out to be quite enjoyable. The single, most impressive feat of the Air Tight is its ability to emancipate the music from the loudspeakers by producing the biggest, airiest soundstage that I’ve ever hear billowing out of a pair of Magnepan 20.1s. In sum, a colossal achievement.” – Jacob Heilbrunn, The Absolute Sound, June/July 2009
