A few MCT Switchable have been made again. After some time of listening with the MCT Switchable, I would not be without him. The combination with the Ortofon SPU Classic on the SME 3012-R is simply outstandingly good. A more detailed description can be found here. Link
This MC transformer can only be manufactured non-regularly in very small quantities, I keep a waiting list for interested customers.
Some time ago I reconditioned these nice vintage Ortofon RMG 309 for Jonathan Weiss of Oswaldsmill Audio, USA. The arm rest is an own design and handcraft which I made for the vintage Ortofon tonearms.
These Ortofon RMG309i tonearm comes in a dirty and not great condition, after a intensiv cleaing and the professional service it looks and works perfectly again. The new internal tonearm wire (Pure Silver Hair Wire) and the refurbishing and precise adjustment of the bearings brought a significant improvement in performance.
That´s a new headshell prototype made from aluminium-titanium-alloy. The weight of these solid headshell is with 16,2 grams a little bit higher, but just right for the SME 3009/3012 tonearms. It has a flat geometry matched to install flat cartridges like a Denon DL103.
