Cambridge Audio



ALVA MC High-output Moving Coil Cartridge

With its exposed cantilever design, elliptical stylus and ability to deliver stunning levels of musical detail, our engineers have designed the ALVA MC High-output Moving Coil cartridge to perfectly compliment the ALVA TT. Adopting visual cues from both the ALVA TT and our Edge range, the ALVA MC features patterned knurling and is finished in lunar grey. Celebrating 50 years of audio innovation, the 68° angle seen running top to bottom serves as a call back to our founding year of 1968.

  • Exposed Cantilever Design – Reduces unwanted resonance and vibration.
  • Elliptical Stylus – Improved frequency response and lower distortion.
  • Designed and Engineered in the UK – Bespoke Cambridge Audio design.

ALVA MC

High-Output Moving Coil 

By using a High Output Moving Coil cartridge we are able to deliver better detail and a higher gain during playback. 

ALVA MC

Exposed Cantilever Design 

The ALVA MC adopts an exposed cantilever design. This cuts down on unwanted resonance and vibration that can be a downside of enclosed designs. 

ALVA MC

Elliptical Stylus 

The ALVA MC features an elliptical stylus, which offers improved frequency response and lower distortion. 

ALVA MC

Lightweight and Fast 

Compared to many of its Moving Magnet (MM) cousins, the ALVA MC is lighter and faster to respond to the record's grooves, therefore able to reproduce mroe of the musical detail within. 

ALVA MC

Designed and Engineered in the UK
