Conceived in 1996 as the most affordable Swiss hand-made moving coil, it took 5 years and a new factory to deliver the Advanced Cartridge Engineering of the ACE in 2001. Now the S Class models of the ACE SL (Red), SM (Clear), SH (Blue) all incorporate the Benz MicroRidge stylus for the best performance/value ratio in phono cartridges, regardless of output level. The SL is .4mV at 3.54cm/sec with a coil impedance of 12 ohms, perfectly suited for MC phono stages with 60dB or higher gain. The SM is 0.8mV and 24 ohms, designed for less efficient systems and tube phono stages with gain between 45 – 58dB. The H2 (2.5mV at 3.54cm/sec) is among the best high output moving coils ever made, ideal for MM type phono stages, low gain tube phono stages and AV systems. Music lovers can take advantage of industry leading programs in upgrading previous Benz models or other brand cartridges to the new ACE S Class.
