Ortofon X1-MCP is a very high output MC cartridge
The X1-MCP is a very high output moving coil (MC) cartridge with an elliptical stylus profile for use with P-Mount (T4P) type tonearms.
Perfect for inbuilt phono preamps or standard moving magnet (MM) preamps, the X1-MCP profiled a taste of the linearity and precision of moving coils without the need for additional high gain preamps or transformers.
