Moving Magnet vs Moving Coil Cartridges

Moving Magnet Cartridges:

Moving magnet (MM) cartridges, equipped with a permanent magnet and copper coils, are a staple for vinyl lovers due to their dynamic sound and compatibility with a wide range of phono preamps. These cartridges often feature an elliptical stylus or spherical stylus that moves smoothly through the vinyl record groove, offering high-frequency response and low distortion. Their magnetic cartridge design ensures compatibility with most turntables and a straightforward maintenance experience.

Moving Coil Cartridges:

Moving coil (MC) cartridges offer a refined listening experience with superior detail retrieval and low distortion. By attaching the coils directly to the cantilever, these cartridges maintain a lower moving mass, allowing for precise tracking and a clearer, higher frequency response. Ideal for audiophiles, MC cartridges require a phono preamp with higher gain to fully capture their intricate sound quality.
