The MC Concept combines high-quality moving coil technology with a minimalist design.
Here, audiophile explorers discover what the optimisation of magnetic circuits can deliver: this cartridge releases crystal clear sounds and represents nothing less than a revolution in its class.
Equipped with a boron cantilever, the MC Concept has channel matching to within half a decibel, 11 ohms internal impedance and is fitted with a Micro Line stylus – features normally unheard of in this price range. All of which adds up to make this high quality cartridge a bargain for the cost-conscious high-end fan.
