Ortofon believe the cartridges in this new series are more than worthy successors to the long line of models that have made Ortofon the global leader in the manufacturing and supplying of phono cartridges.

The slim profile of its Nude Fine Line diamond stylus will track even the highest frequency information, making it a must for discerning listeners. Additionally its larger footprint ensures reduced distortion and record wear. The MC Quintet Bronze adds even more details and resolution but in a very even handed way that pays respect to all elements. Classical music will be reproduced with power and open space around every instrument. All types of music will be expressed with the highest accuracy, precision and dynamics.

The MC Quintet Series is congruent with Ortofon’s unrelenting commitment to providing the most precise and accurate reproduction possible without colouration.
