Ortofon T-3000

Moving-Coil Transformer

Ortofon T-3000


The Ortofon T-3000 has been specifically designed to match the electrical characteristics of Ortofon's top range moving coil cartridge MC3000, which is a low output design.

Consequently, the T-3000 has a high gain, 30dB, which ensures accurate and noiseless matching to the 47k ohm phono inputs on main amplifiers.

In addition, the unit will give a high level of performance when used with other top quality moving coil cartridges with an internal impedance in the 3-5 ohm range.


Transformer input matches pick-up impedance: 3-5 ohm

Output loading of transformer: 47k ohm / 100pf

Frequency response: 8Hz to 100kHz

Gain: 30dB

Channel balance: within 0.2dB

Channel separation: >90dB
