Moving Coil (MC) cartridge. Flagship product that outperforms Koetsus at sensible price. Words cannot describe the sound but that is only half the reason to choose this model over all others. First of all, build quality, consistency and reliability. Second, no great need to wait 100 hours for run in to sound best. Third, no need for extreme precision calibration by ear or instruments. The tip is fine cut against grain so the life is far in excess of normal. Ring for more information.
