Lyra’s phonograph cartridges from Japan symbolize artisanal craftsmanship and sound quality. Each cartridge is meticulously constructed and tested to ensure the enthusiast has the capability of extracting all that the groove has to offer.

Lyra’s exquisite phono cartridges are the beautiful result of a collaboration between a remarkable trio: Jonathan Carr, the American conceptualizer and designer; Yoshinori Mishima, the Japanese master craftsman whose watchful eye ensures state-of-the-art manufacturing and assembly, and Norwegian Stig Bjorge, the business head, who ties the enterprise together. All three share an intense passion for audio and are fanatical about creating and producing the most advanced phono cartridges. This Tokyo-based team not only lives on the frontier of design and manufacturing but is constantly moving that frontier forward.

Lyra’s mission is to create long-lasting products that combine original thinking, advanced engineering, and the application of ideal materials. Lyra’s cartridges are built 100% from the ground up in Japan, with the artisanal craftsmanship that Japan is revered for. The result is a family of transducers that extract unprecedented revealed texture, transparency, and dynamic contrast from an analog music collection, ensuring maximum immersion and emotional involvement in the music.

Music can inspire, energize, or relax. Immersion into our personal music can rejuvenate us, nourish us intellectually and emotionally, and stimulate our imaginations. Listening to music can be an effortless form of meditation. Just like a live performance, analog playback has a unique ability to allow us to relax, let our guard down, and disappear into the music and ourselves. Lyra phono cartridges provide a direct and transparent conduit to our LP collection’s music waiting for us. With these objectives in mind, Lyra presents its latest works of art.
