In this model the mass of the magnetic system has been dramatically reduced by using a powerful samarium-cobalt magnet with a specially designed pole-piece structure. According to Ortofon, the magnetic system weighs only 0.8 gram, as compared with the normal 4.2 grams of most previous MC cartridge designs.

The cross-shaped armature allows more turns of wire in the coils, with a correspondingly higher output voltage. Each leg of the cross contains 230 turns of fine wire (only 18 micrometers in diameter), a total of 460 per channel. Together with the improved magnetic system, the increased number of turns gives the cartridge a rated output of 2 millivolts, sufficient to drive the magnetic cartridge inputs of almost any preamplifier without the use of an auxiliary step-up transformer or head amplifier.

The X3-MC has a Fine Line nude-mounted stylus with radii of 35 and 7 micrometers. The extended line contact of the X3 stylus with the groove walls gives it a high-frequency response out to 40,000 Hz.

The Ortofon X3-MC, which mounts on standard 1/2-inch centers, weighs 4.1 grams. It is designed to operate at tracking forces from 1.8 to 2.2 grams, with 2 grams being the recommended value. The recommended load impedance is 47,000 ohms, although the 80-ohm internal resistance of the X3-MC's coils makes it relatively immune to the effects of load variation. Channel separation at 1,000 Hz is rated at 25 dB. The cartridge is rated to track a 70-micrometer lateral-modulation amplitude at 315 Hz.
