Ortofon MC Turbo MC1

Ortofon MC Turbo MC1

0 out of 5



A budget high output moving coil cartridge with a super smooth sound which we really like.

Sound great on Linn LP12’s.

The MC-1 Turbo is an excellent entry into the world of high output Moving Coil (MC) cartridges, with an elliptical stylus profile.

The MC-1 Turbo has a 3.3mV output, which makes it perfect for use with inbuilt phono preamps – specifically ones designed for Moving Magnet (MM) cartridges.

The MC-1 Turbo provides a taste of the linearity and precision of moving coils, but without the need for additional high gain preamps or transformers.
