(NEWS) Introducing Khumar, The New MC Phono Cartridge From EBI

Khumar means crazy … crazy about music, crazy about hi-fi. It also means crazy about achieving an unforgettable vinyl playback experience with Khumar, EBI Audio’s stunningly expressive new low-output MC phono cartridge. Khumar is available exclusively through MIBS Distro in the US and Canada.
Khumar is engineered and precision-built in Uttar Pradesh India, and loaded with exotic components and materials, including a gorgeous handcrafted Ebony-wood body, Shibata III stylus, and boron cantilever assembly from Orbray (formerly Namiki), and a magnetic core with soft iron and neodymium magnets. Input impedance is a low 2 ohms while output is an impressive 0.3mV making it an easy drive for modern phono stages, and the channel separation is spec’d at an excellent >32dB.
Khumar’s hardwood body imbues an expressiveness that is utterly addictive but remains even to the bottom with superb imaging and spatial qualities. Combined with an openness and resolving power that belies its modest price Khumar is a truly special offering, the first of many from EBI Audio.
MIBS’ first shipment of Khumar cartridges is in stock and they are shipping to dealers now; online sales are open on July 1.

MIBS’ Isaac Markowitz will be attending T.H.E. Show LA this weekend, look for him at Huntington 1&2 for an in-person demo of Khumar on an Acoustic Signature Montana Neo turntable.

About EBI Audio
Behind the 10+ years and counting musical journey that is Engineering Beyond Imagination is Tariq Shafeeque, who humbly refers to himself as EBI’s “Design Manager.” Tariq is in fact the company’s Founder and owner, in addition to designer and engineer. Tariq is a structural engineer by trade and education, but being raised hearing the “melodious notes of record players” Tariq became an avid record collector and eventually began modifying turntables and cartridges before designing and building his own under the EBI Audio banner. Tariq’s passion is to use the latest technological advancements to provide EBI’s customers with an “unforgettable listening experience.”
