The Quintet Series of Moving Coil Cartridges is congruent with Ortofon’s unrelenting commitment to providing the most precise and accurate reproduction possible without colouration:
A special ABS (Acrylonitrile/Butadiene/Styrene) thermoplastic material is used to manufacture the body. This lightweight, impact-resistant material is very suitable for injection moulding and provides a very durable scratch-resistant surface.
Neodymium magnets are implemented to achieve an optimal output.
Low internal impedance makes the cartridge less sensitive to load and therefore ensures compatibility with the widest range of preamps and transformers.
It is our aim to bring our customers many hours of new and surprising experiences listening to their precious vinyl collection.
Each of the five Quintet Series cartridges has its own individual sonic expression, and all five models together represent the ensemble of five classic variations:
MC Quintet Mono is a true mono cartridge for playing mono microgroove vinyl records
MC Quintet Red is an all-purpose cartridge that delivers open, dynamic sound with a slight touch of warmth
MC Quintet Blue adds more dynamics and resolution, sounds more open and reproduces more details
MC Quintet Bronze adds even more details and resolution but in a very evenhanded way that pays respect to all elements
MC Quintet Black S is the best of everything, true to the groove with resolution and accurate insight into each recording
