Ortofon MC 20 Super Refurbished

The classic cartridge, which was first introduced 35 years ago, has been recognized as one of the first MC-cartridges that combined a relatively high compliance with a smooth, and yet extended frequency response.

MC 20 Super features:
   - Acclaimed Nude FG-70 stylus on aluminium cantilever
   - Wide Range Damping (WRD)
   - High rigidity extruded aluminium construction plus aluminium cover/housing
