EMT was founded in 1940 and became famous by manufacturing professional turntables in Lahr, Germany. In 1965, EMT launched the famous MC cartridge TSD 15, which was produced in many ten-thousand pieces and used in broadcast studios all over the world. In 1974, the portfolio was widened for hi-fi enthusiasts as well.
In 2014, the manufactory of the EMT cartridges was moved step by step to HiFiction AG. In a long-lasting process, all know-how, equipment and tooling was carefully transferred to the young team in Winterthur. Since then, all EMT cartridges are designed and manufactured in Switzerland.
