The Acoustic Signa­ture MCX1 is a modern moving-coil cart­ridge, manu­fac­tured accor­ding to the latest techno­logies – the optimal partner for our NEO tone­arm series. An elliptical stylus assu­ring pre­cise tracking results, copper coils and a CNC-milled and reso­nance-opti­mized chas­sis deve­loped accor­ding to the finite ele­ment design prin­ciple form the basis for a true all-rounder.


Special features:

  • Modern MC cartridge with copper coils
  • Resonance-optimized aluminum chassis
  • Easy mounting
  • Precise tracking due to elliptical stylus
  • Suitable for medium to high mass tonearms
