Ortofon MC 200

10/10 by Othello

Ahead of its time: has the technologies currently employed in Winfield, for example. Highly resolving of recording minutiae; minimizes record noise in the way that only low output coils can do; very linear, dynamic, and resolving of both highs and lows. A bargain.

Very fine cartridge, can sound just a tad bright (+-2dB unit to unit variation), otherwise excellent extension from bass to treble. As mentioned, main drawback is very low output, also can be a little difficult to set up due to light weight and short cantilever.

Old but an excellent cartridge - low output (0.09mv)with brilliant treble. Rides very low so warped records should be avoided.

Fantastic cartridge, smooth liquid mid range, solid bass and shimmering treble. Vocals sound very natural. Only negative, very low output - needs mc pre-preamp with very high gain, more than 30dB.

I changed the MC20MKII to this MC200U. This is a very good cartridge. I think better like MC20MKII. I use in a LINN Axis with LINN Basic Plus LVX. Recommended! :-)
