The MCX series…


Acoustic Signature

The MM series has been engi­nee­red in accor­dance with the highest stan­dards and is cong­ruent with our unre­len­ting commit­ment to provi­ding the most pre­cise and accu­rate repro­duc­tion possi­ble without colo­ration. The weight and size fit to the most com­mon turn­tab­les on the market today. The MM series pro­vides excel­lent com­pa­ti­bility when used in an assort­ment of play­back sys­tems and with a wide variety of phono preamps.

The Acoustic Signa­ture MM3 moving-magnet cart­ridge is graced with a Shibata dia­mond. Its slim, highly poli­shed profile allows an excee­dingly wide con­tact area to the groove walls and ensu­res nota­bly detai­led repro­duc­tion through­out the spec­trum, inclu­ding even the most high frequency groove infor­mation. The cart­ridge body used for the MM3 is manu­fac­tured from Lexan DMX Piano Black, a revo­lutio­nary mate­rial which ensures high rigidity while elimi­na­ting unwan­ted reso­nan­ces. The MM3 uses a special upgra­ded engine, featu­ring split pole pins with a silver pla­ted copper wire.
