" ... the extreme harmonics of the treble were brought out with
a crispness that came as a shock next to the harshness of many other
cartridges. Record after record succumbed to the treatment of the
aptly named 'MusicMaker'.
It was easy to subconsciously compare the unit's performance favourably
with (MC) cartridges selling at far higher cost ...
Many MCs do not manage anything like the MusicMaker's (Mk II) 30Cu
figure nor do they give anything like its 4mV @ 5Cm/S.
It has a sheer listenablity that few competitors combine in the same
small body, and that sounds like a bargain at any price."
World Verdict ****
Richard White, HiFi World,
"... in fact, on all grounds the Mk III is
a better cartridge than the Mk II. In particular, we gain greater
clarity, lower noise floor level, faster dynamics and a better sense
of space. It is really an excellent cartridge"
E. Barker, TNT AUDIO
"The first thing you notice is the solidity and presence it has
compared to almost all MC cartridges. There's a sense of unstoppable
momentum to music...
For anyone using a valve pre-amp like a Conrad-Johnson or early ARC,
this cartridge is manna from heaven.
Being used to hearing vastly expensive MCs in a system tailored to
their balance, the MusicMaker never left me feeling short-changed.
... never was a product so aptly named; never was an alternative so
Roy Gregory, Hi-Fi+,
" Good price, high output and a winning musicality make this
moving iron cartridge the one to beat."
Hi-Fi World buying guide
' ... the MusicMaker will, in its latest guise, stands toe-to-toe
with coils at anything up to three times its price.'
Roy Gregory, Hi-Fi+,
" The MusicMaker (Mk II) is an extremely interesting product;
it links the best of both (MM and MC) worlds together; it is clean,
accurate and detailed like a good MC while it has the warmth and the
"weight" of the best MM's.
In the end, the quality/price ratio of this cartridge is simply excellent.
Only real Music Lovers apply."
Lucio Cadeddu, TNT
"This £500 (MusicMaker Mk II) cartridge, when fitted to
the Recovery/RB900, beats the more expensive Orbe/SME/Dynavector DRT-1
(£2500, MC) combination ..."
