Ortofon Quintet Blue

Ortofon are committed to delivering the best quality cartridges for your turntable, in an effort to offer the most refined and exquisite analogue sound quality. Ortofon have introduced around 100 different moving coil cartridge models since 1948, with the newest range being the colourful and capable Quintet Series.

Ortofon believe that the new Quintet range are more than qualified to be the worthy successors to the vast line of high-quality turntable cartridges they've developed previously, and just be consulting the specifications - its not hard to see why. The Quintet series has been described as possessing its 'own individual sonic expression', and each of the five models together represent the team of five classic models.

The Quintet Blue moving coil cartridge from Ortofon is extremely homologous, and has been designed to provide a smoother sound reproduction than its entry-level brother, the Quintet Red, while offering a moderate strength in dynamic when compared to its superior, the Quintet Bronze. The Blue utilises a nude Elliptical diamond, which is mounted upon an aluminium cantilever, and brings a more spacious sound, topped with more depth and detail than other cartridges at its price point. The Blue will bring any genre or style of music to life, but truly thrives within a rhythmic domain.
