Micro-Acoustics 2002-E

Low-Mass Stereo Phono Cartridge

Micro-Acoustics 2002-E


Recognizing the importance of transient and tracking ability, Micro-Acoustics has developed a radical new design that optimizes transient and tracking ability for the first time in a single phono cartridge: the 2002-E.

Compared to a conventional high-quality stereo cartridge, the 2002-E exhibits noticeably superior transient ability throughout the audio spectrum.

Yet, the 2002-E is truly a high-compliance cartridge, which can track the loudest of recorded passages at 1 gram pressure, for minimum record and stylus wear.
