Thorens cartridge TAS 1500 MC

Moving Coil Cartridge with boron cantilever and microlinear cut


With an output voltage of 0.6mV (5.5cm/sec) and 12 ohms internal resistance, the pick-up harmonises with all common phono preamplifiers. A naked diamond with microlinear cut in combination with a solid boron cantilver guarantee best pickup capability and sound quality.

The THORENS TAS 1500 is an MC pickup manufactured for THORENS in Japan. The aim of the development was the optimal combination of the pick-up in combination with the TD 1500 and TD 403 DD turntable and the TP 150 precision tonearm. With an output voltage of 0.6mV (5.5cm/sec) and 12 ohms internal resistance, the pick-up harmonises with all common phono pream-plifiers. A naked diamond with microlinear cut in combination with a solid boron cantilver guarantee best pickup capability and sound quality.
