Why is MC sound superior? Linearity. Ortofon's low-impedance, low-output design delivers an unparalleled sound. The MC Tango, Samba, and Salsa are proof. Tango features an elliptical diamond and 0.5mV output. Samba and Salsa feature tiny nude Elliptical/Fine Line diamonds, mounted on a light, rigid cantilever, giving excellent results with any arm. The MC Samba and Salsa have increased output voltages of 0.3mV and 0.38mV. Tango offers a remarkable price-to-performance ratio and 0.5mV output, ideal for transformers/active preamps.
