Who is Ortofon?

Ortofon design and engineer have a reputation of developing some of the most highly regarded and superior turntable cartridges on the market. The Mono CG 65 DI Mk II is a testament to this reputation, and exists as an SPU-style moving coil (MC) solution with a spherical stylus profile. This allows the cartridge to play early 65µm mono and 78RPM recordings to their best ability. The CG 65 DI Mk II offers an authentic method of playing these earlier recordings, regardless of what material these recordings may be made from; all the while retaining a superior level of sonic accuracy that one would expect from any product designed and perfected by Ortofon.
