    Besides, the increased lighted body of the cartridge, featuring only 10 gram mass enables superb vibration control.
    The thin and long gold plated pin connectors enable the ideal contact with arm cinches; the good contact unable energy dispersion and better grounding for a more silent music background to reach all minor details listening to the music.
    Because the Machiavelli Red 130 ohm high internal impedance and 2.0 mV output level it can be easily matched with any active phono preamp MM and even correctly set-up MC ones, without Step-Up transformers.
