This high-class low-output MC cartridge has been recently re-designed and the mk2 version comes with even better output levels and impedance values. Housed in an elegantly shaped alloy body Machiavelli offers a perfect balance and great dynamics being the perfect host for your music collection.
The Machiavelli series is available in two models: Machiavelli Gold with an output level of 0.4mV and Machiavelli Red with an output level of 0.5mV, both can be matched with MM phono stages as well.
Machiavelli’s extra rigid cantilever handles a high precision Line Contact diamond on the Gold model and a Micro Elliptical diamond on the Red model, both developed in collaboration with Ogura, the inventor of the Line-Contact diamond shape.
The diamond tip is mechanically inserted and blocked into the new cantilever that is consequently handled by a special pipe to increase structural rigidity.
The Machiavelli Series can be easily matched with any active phono preamp for MC cartridges, without the need of Step-Up transformers.
The cantilever suspension takes advantage of an elastic and non-deformable harmonic steel spring, rigidly blocked to eliminate vibrations thus enhancing the tracking capability.
With thin and long gold-plated pin connectors, Machiavelli is designed to connect perfectly with arm cinches, reducing energy dispersion and improving grounding for an ideal music background necessary to enjoy even the smaller details of your records.
Machiavelli Gold mkII offers extra rigidity with its Boron cantilever and 30Ω high internal impedance and 0.4mV output level to easily match with MC phono preamps set-up without Step-Up transformers.
Machiavelli Red mkII offers extra rigidity with its Aluminium cantilever and 40Ω high internal impedance and 0.5mV output level to easily match with MC phono preamps set-up without Step-Up transformers.
