CAPSULE MM / MC ORTOFON MC 3 TURBO
Next link in the family of high output moving coil pickups from Ortofon, the MC 3 Turbo incorporates a series of refinements in its internal structure that allow it to offer, delivering exactly the same electrical voltage at its output, a sweeter and more energetic sound. Specifically, the use of one of the exclusive Fine Line Nude diamond tips from Ortofon makes it possible for the MC 3 Turbo to exhibit superior registers in groove-tracking ability and compliance, both parameters closely related to a cartridge's ability to scan vinyl records and extract all the sonic subtleties they contain. As a result, the frequency response curve extends up to 30 kHz, thus competing with many traditional voice coil models. On the other hand, the MC 3 Turbo's high output moving coil cartridge condition allows it to fit comfortably into any phono section that is compatible with moving magnet (MM) pickups and thus avoid the extra expense of the need for have dedicated amplification circuitry or step-up transformer. The MC 3 Turbo is also characterized by its extreme lightness, a detail that makes it the perfect complement to the arms of moderate mass that are equipped with many high quality / price turntables available on the market.
