Jan Allaerts MC2 Finish Cartridge

When Jan Allaerts makes a cartridge it's a special process that can take up to a year. As any MC2 Finish owner will tell you, it's worth the wait. There is no other cartridge we've heard which has the balance of impeccable technical performance and absolutely beguiling musicality. Dead quiet groove noise, extreme dynamics and the utmost of detail are matched by the pure naturalness of every note. This is a cartridge with no trade-offs. It is all things to all people. Hear the sound of the master tape.
