Ortofon are a Danish manufacturer of high quality phono cartridges, designed to get the very most out of your vinyl collection from a variety of price points. Ortofon cartridges, both Moving Magnet and Moving Coil configuration are commonly found supplied with high quality ProJect turntable models, but Ortofon cartridges sound exceptional with any compatible turntable.
Moving Coil cartridges feature an inverted version of the Moving Magnet design. Instead of a magnet sitting on the end of the cantilever between two coils, the coils are attached the cantilever and a magnet is placed near them. Because space within the cartridge at this level is extremely limited, the coils are made from an exceptionally fine wire. The coils tiny size results in a very low output. Equipped with a Replicant 100 stylus and a conical aluminium cantilever, the Ortofon Cadenza Bronze moving coil cartridge is a superbly accomplished musical performer. Ortofon Aucurum wire forms the special coil material for transparent natural sound. For superior musical reproduction at the highest level, look no further than this superb cartridge.
Named after the famous Ortofon designer Per Winfeld, the Ortofon Winfeld MC Cartridge utilises some of the most advanced mechanical and electrical technology available in the world today, to create a moving coil cartridge of amazing resolution and speed. With a design based on the Kontrapunkt series, this cartridge has perfect mechanical integration with the headshell/ tonearm due to the presence of three raised 'dots' on the mounting surface.
A single, non-resonant alloy block leads all the way from mounting point to the stylus cantilever support, which ensures all of the groove information is transferred into a perfect electrical signal, ensuring the listener is rewarded with the finest sound quality possible.Fitted with a Boron cantilever and a highly polished version of the Ortofon Replicant stylus 100, tracking ability is superb.
