Thomas Schick based his cartridge, Das MM, on a DJ oriented cartridge with a whopping 8mV output and an aluminium cantilever with elliptical tip ! Das MM comes with a modified needle assembly. By removing the colored dot on the cantilever it allows a lighter weight and enhances the frequency responses as well as transient responses and soundstage enhancement.
The generator itself is anchored in a new new housing from the same material as the one used with Schick‘s plinths. If the already very dynamic sounding cartridge characteristic are preserved, this new version allows much much more refinement. With a low compliance, this cartridge will be at ease with medium to high effective mass tonearm. Remember : no step-up, no active devices needed : just connect your tonearm to your MM phonostage and let the music play !
If your High End MC cartridge is a refined Champagne dinner with micro cuisine, then Das MM system is Whiskey with a BBQ Steak.
Das MM is not sold as a standalone cartridge, it comes along with the Oiled Graphite Schick headshell, a perfect combination ready to be installed and set up on your tonearm !
