Cartridge Man Music Maker MKIII
The CartridgeMan Music Maker Mk III is the third and latest award winning version ofthis stunningly musical cartridge. As a Moving Iron (MI) design, it hasall the musical benefits of a moving coil (MC) cartridge with an outputlevel similar to that a moving magnet (MM) design, allowing you to use it with any standard phono stage.
As with any cartridge, correct trackingforce is important. Too heavy and it becomes laboured in its midband andboomey in the bass, too light and it sharpens the music. When set atits 1.58g sweet spot, you will understand why Cartridge Man Len Gregorycalls this 'The Music Maker'. The Music Maker MkIII offers a chance toexperience music in a truly sublime way, with stronger presence andmusicality than many moving coil designs. With many users turning tomoving iron cartridges and selecting the Music Maker MkIII as theirdefinitive purchase, we can only applaud their wisdom.
