Lyra Analog

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 possible phono cartridges. This Tokyo-based team not only lives on the frontier of design and manufacturing, they are constantly moving that frontier forward.


From the mind and heart of Marc Gomez, SAT’s meticulously engineered components have won raves from the world’s top reviewers and a rabid following among the most diehard, fanatical analog enthusiasts. SAT is among audio’s most coveted and exclusive brands.

Since the introduction of its original Pickup Arm in 2015, SAT has cemented its place at the pinnacle of the audio engineering and manufacture, world-renowned for its award-winning LM and CF1 series ultra high-performance pickup arms and the XD1 Record Player System.
