All of these cartridges are made for Acoustic Signature by Ortofon, and they are based on Ortofon's 2m moving magnet models, and MC Quintet moving coil models. They are specially "tuned" for interface with the Acoustic Signature turntables and tonearms, and represent even better bang-for-the-buck than their Ortofon counterparts.
MC 2 adds more dynamics and resolution, sounds very open and reproduces more details. Sound is very neutral.
