Ortofon MC 200

Stereo Moving-Coil Cartridge

Ortofon MC 200


The MC 200 integrated moving coil cartridge incorporates a host of new Ortofon developments that have prompted audiophiles and HiFi critics all over the world to applaud it as one of the best cartridges they have ever heard.

A tiny, highly polished asymmetrical fine line stylus, super light and rigid boron cantilever, and an improved WRD system ensure excellent tracking ability across the entire frequency range.

The tiny, though powerful samarium cobalt magnet has permitted the design of a miniaturised cartridge unit that fits snugly into the elegantly slim housing.

As an integrated unit, the MC 200 plugs directly on to all tonearms with standard sockets.

It incorporates overhang and vertical adjustment facilities.

A universal version called the MC 200 U is available and fits all tonearms with 1/2" headshell mounting holes.
