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 MC Quintet Mono is a natural cartridge for use with mono microgroove vinyl recordings, featuring a Nude Elliptical r/R 9/18µ stylus. The Quintet Mono will glide perfectly between each and every precise groove of the vinyl recording, and will uncover and reveal new life to even worn and damaged records while keeping control of surface noise.

The Quintet Mono utilises a strapped output to offer the same output signal from both sets of pole pins. This has been designed to effectively eliminate the requirement of mono-specific equipment, allowing you to thoroughly enjoy a true mono sound on any stereo system
