The Ortofon MC-3 Turbo takes high output Moving Coil cartridges a step further from the MC-1, with a high polished, nude fine line diamond.
The Nude Fine Line diamond resolves a high level of detail and provides expansive stereo imaging.
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.
Ortofon High Output MC Cartridges
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.
