Ortofon: MC 1 Turbo

High Output MC

NOK2 200,00 inkl. mva.


Ortofon MC-1 Turbo cartridge is a taste of linearity and precision

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.
