Description

With maPlatine.com, trade in your old Ortofon MC cartridges for similar or higher end Ortofon cartridge models. 

This Ortofon MC1 Turbo MC cartridge is the most affordable high output moving coil cartridge that we know. Its technical and technological characteristics make it a highly versatile cartridge.

Ortofon MC1 Turbo: body and stylus

Its body is made of Noryl, a light composite material with great mechanical and damping properties.

The excellent quality stylus has an elliptical profile. 

Ortofon MC1 Turbo: compatibility

The Ortofon MC1 Turbo is a true MC cartridge with extra coils for a higher output of 3.3mv. This makes it compatible with most phono preamps and amps that don't have an input for low output cartridges.

Its lightweight 4.1 g means it can be used on turntables and particularly on tonearms that cannot bear weights or more than 6 g, like the Pro-Ject Debut 3 or Debut Esprit. 

Ortofon MC1 Turbo: listening and review

After a break-in period of a few hours, this Ortofon cartridge will deliver a full-bodied and precise sound.

Its extremely neutral tonal balance makes it highly versatile.

The treble is typical of moving coil models, reaching very high frequencies with a lot of definition and no distortion.

The dynamic range is good but favours melodic and full-bodied music listening.

The Ortofon MC1 Turbo cartridge is a high-end range cartridge for demanding music lovers who do not want to break the bank or who do not have a turntable justifying such a heavy investment.

Highly recommended!

Excellente cellule

Habitué que j'étais aux cellules MM, j'étais désolé de ne pas pouvoir tester les cellules MC. Et j'ai découvert qu'il existe des cellules MC haut niveau, c'est à dire directement utilisables sur un préampli MM dont je ne suis pas pourvu. J'ai donc acheté cette cellule, bien conscient que, d'ici deux à trois ans, il me faudra débourser une somme identique puisque, contrairement aux cellules MM, il n'est pas possible de changer seulement le stylet.
A l'écoute, c'est un vrai régal. Mon ancienne pointe, une vulgaire Ortofon OM-5E somme toute de qualité raisonnable pour son prix, est enterrée. l'Ortofon MC1 Turbo est d'une douceur incroyable, qui sait, et c'est déjà un bon point, être beaucoup moins sensible aux bruits de surface ; ça craque, ça frotte beaucoup moins. Ensuite, la transcription musicale est beaucoup plus douce, comme plus naturelle. L'image stéréophonique est précise, chaque instrument (je suis classique) trouve sa place naturellement. Il ressort une écoute apaisée, d'une grande homogénéité, sans aucune agressivité. Je suis sous le charme.
