Ortofon Quintet Bronze

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 Bronze is one of the higher-level Quintet models. With its slim profile of Nude Fine Line diamond stylus, the Bronze is able to track even the most delicate and precise of high-frequency information, which makes this cartridge a must-have for any discerning music enthusiast. Additionally, the larger footprint of the cartridge ensures a reduction in unwanted distortion and the wearing-down of vinyl records. Ortofon describe the Quintet Bronze as offering a 'very even-handed' sound with 'respect to all aspects'. Classical music is especially well-played from the Bronze, and is given a more powerful and open-spaced life than ever before. All types of music however, will be conveyed with the highest precision and accuracy, to give the best possible dynamic experience.
