Review Extracts

" ... 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
, 2/99, P53


"... 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 8/04


"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 welcome."

Roy Gregory,
Hi-Fi+, 5/00, P52-53


" 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+, 7/01, P98-99


" 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 AUDIO


"This £500 (MusicMaker Mk II) cartridge, when fitted to the Recovery/RB900, beats the more expensive Orbe/SME/Dynavector DRT-1 (£2500, MC) combination ..."

Geoff Husband, TNT AUDIO
