Nov. 2009 - The first try - the very first prototype
Feb. 2012 - Mono cartridge "EINS" 1st generation DT101l - Combination of Wood, Bone, Brass, Diamond!
Aug. 2012 - Mono cartridge 2nd generation (G-type) DT101L
Wood, Bone, Brass, Diamond, Nacre!!
The 2nd generation began with placing a pearl eye (Froschauge) on the head of the cartridge which is inspired by the frog part of a violin bow. Many thanks to Christian who taught me all the techniques and skills for this particular beauty! Approx. 51mm from diamond tip to front of tonearm, compatible with Ortofon SPU, EMT TSD15 etc. An example of A-type in Video
Aug.2012 - The old version of the handle looked quite elegant. (Mono 2nd gen.) But it needed a new shape which is giving our system additional stability and usability. It is shorter than the old one and is designed ergonomically.
Sep. 2012 - Mono cartridge "U-Type" 1st generation DT101u
A half-inch system from the mono 2nd generation.
The example above is a DT101u+custom made headshell for Ortofon RMA297. Approx. 31mm from diamond tip to front of tonearm, compatible with Ortofon SPU-a, EMT TSD15. Neumann DST, DST62 etc.
11.Dez.2013 - A custom finished case for a stereo half-inch system
A favorable failure - It was the first attempt to engrave a stereo symbol on the head of the cartridge case. Tedeska has not yet had any stereo pick-ups. But, unfortunately, the first try failed due to a miscalculation of distance between the centres of two rings. Anyway, the customer was delighted with the result.
Apr.2015 - Stereo cartridge 1st generation DST201u (Prototyp1)
It is named "OREO" by my sons. It wasn't my intention but I had no choice but to agree. Two prototypes of our very first stereo system; DST 201u & DST201l in Video
13-17. May. 2015 -Tedeska cartridges (mono & stereo) were presented for the first time at an Exhibition. The 2015 High-End in Munich Germany
Feb. 2016 - A stereo version cartridge 2nd generation DST201u (Prototyp2)
Bone part on the front is removed (cf.Prototype 1). A round recess each side for easier manageability.
18-21. May. 2017 -Tedeska stereo cartridge 3rd generation DST201ua (Generator without iron) was presented for the first time at the 2017 High-End in Munich Germany
TEDESKA has now a new name : TEDESKA Vinyl Groove Pick-up Technology ! Thank you Reinhard! Photos and Video
17-19. Nov. 2017 - TEDESKA made a debut in Poland at the kind invitation of the Moje audio (Poland) at Audio Video Show 2017 in Warsaw. Warsaw was an extraordinarily beautiful city with extraordinarily kind people ; On hearing that my wife caught a chill, everyone gave me some cold pills, everyone. Thank you Krzysztof, Renata, Robert and and and you all.
26. Nov. 2017 - We have finally been able to have a „real“ Homepage. Bye blogspot. Bye google!
16. Jan. 2018 - As of now, every TEDESKAs will get a uniform for the way to its new home. Packaging boxes, designed by Francesca Lee, eventually arrived.
20. Mar. 2018 - Stereo cartridge 4th generation - The first example from the TEDESKA Stereo "Solid Core" line has been tested successfully. It is actually a development of the third generation (DST201ua) from 2017 but the sound characteristics are changed so much, and much of them in a positive way thanks to the development of the air core coil generator and a totally new winding technology which made a generation change self-evident. Armed with a boron cantilever, the line inherited yet the character "a" because none of the examples from the last generation is distributed as yet. I personally would name the line "Impressionist". I wonder how many people will agree with me. The character "b" is reserved for the TEDESKA "Progressive" line. The line retained the existing TEDESKA characteristics more in comparison to Solid Cores. Taking extra advantages of boron cantilever, the cartridges of this line will be "grand pianos" among our products which will provide versatile possibilities of use as well as of customise.
