Product Description

The compact cartridge has a pleasant and dynamic sound with an enormous vitality. If you want to enjoy listening to the sound of analog records of outstanding quality more often, this cartridge is just the right thing for you. The cartridge system harmonizes with most known tonearms that are not too easily built. The installation is very easy thanks to straight, square edges and the threaded holes and thus also very simple to adjust.

The MC-3 Turbo takes high output Moving Coil cartridges a step further, with a high polished, nude fine line diamond.

The MC-3 Turbo has a 3.3mV output, which is perfect for use with virtually any Moving Magnet (MM) phono preamps, included inbuilt models.

The Nude Fine Line diamond resolves a high level of detail and provides expansive stereo imaging.

In 1948 Ortofon introduced the world's first moving coil cartridge. Since then, the MC principle has been universally acknowledged as the ultimate sonic performance. Though the high price of moving coil technology and the necessity of an outboard step up device to boost the low output voltage made the MC cartridges a luxury.

With the introduction of the first High Output X Series cartridges, Ortofon demonstrated that it is possible to produce MC cartridges with sufficiently high output to eliminate the need for additional step-up devices without compromising the construction principles and unique sound quality of moving coil designs.

Ortofon High Output Series cartridges offer you the opportunity to enjoy legendary pure Ortofon Moving Coil sound without the notorious disadvantages of costly extra step-up devices.

The high output voltage of the High Output series cartridges is compatible with the normal MM phono input of any amplifier.

You will get only genuine goods from the German distribution! The mounting screws are enclosed with the delivery.
