The Acoustic Signature MCX4 is our flag­ship! This modern moving-coil cart­ridge is manu­fac­tured accor­ding to the latest tech­no­logies – the opti­mal part­ner for our NEO tone­arm series. A ‘nude’ Shibata stylus assu­ring perfect tracking results, gold-plated coils made of oxygen-free cop­per and a CNC-milled and reso­nance-opti­mized chassis deve­loped accor­ding to the finite ele­ment design princi­ple form the basis for an abso­lute top-class cartridge.


Special features:

  • Modern MC cartridge with gold-plated, oxygen-free copper coils
  • Reso­nance-opti­mized alumi­num chassis
  • Easy mounting
  • Excellent tracking due to nude Shibata stylus
  • Suitable for medium to high mass tonearms
