Stereo Moving-Coil Cartridge

Pfeifer PMC 700 P


The Pfeifer PMC700P MC cartridge has eliminated the disadvantage of normal MC cartridges having a lesser output by an ingenious solution.

The cartridge has a samarium cobalt magnet of extremely small dimensions which has a ten-fold coercitive power compared to a normal alinco magnet.

A silver wire of only 11 microns has been used for the coil.

Features a boron cantilever and paroc stylus developed by Dr Weinz.
