The van den Hul MC-10 Special MC Cartridge is a custom hand-built moving coil cartridge with VDH-Type 1 tip, boron cantilever, matched crystal silver-wire coils and 0.65 mV/channel. The designation "Special" in this cartridge's name indicates important improvements over its previous version. The MC-10 Special is equipped with a thicker frontpole and an extra small magnet, both further enhancing its resolution capabilities and output voltage.
"The MC-10 Special immediately distinguished itself from the other cartridges in one area: high-frequency purity and resolution. The MC-10 offered the purest, most refined, resolved high frequencies, absolutely and totally free of grain and grit... It did the best job on the Tchaikovsky recording, turning in an absolutely stunning, heart-stopping rendition of Heifetz's violin, and even making the rather watery orchestral recording richer..." - Michael Fremer, www.analogplanet.com
