Product Description

Ortofon MC-1 Turbo Moving Coil Cartridge

Click here to browse our range of Turntables, Pre-Amps and Accessories.

Please re balance your arm when you change either cartridge or stylus as per manufacturers instructions.

The MC-1 Turbo is an excellent entry into the world of high output Moving Coil (MC) cartridges, with an elliptical stylus profile.

The MC-1 Turbo has a 3.3mV output, which makes it perfect for use with inbuilt phono preamps – specifically ones designed for Moving Magnet (MM) cartridges.

The MC-1 Turbo provides a taste of the linearity and precision of moving coils, but without the need for additional high gain preamps or transformers.
