Quintet Series

Nothing demonstrates Ortofon's long-standing resilience more than its commitment to the refinement of analogue sound quality and its continued development of new cartridge models. Since 1948 Ortofon have introduced about 100 different moving coil models, with their latest being the Quintet Series.

Ortofon believe the cartridges in this new series are more than worthy successors to the long line of models that have made Ortofon the global leader in the manufacturing and supplying of phono cartridges.

The Ortofon Quintet Red features an Elliptical diamond which is cut and polished to Ortofon’s high standards. This entry-level MC cartridge has very high performance standard and is a perfect all-rounder for the newcomers to the world of Moving Coil cartridges. Ortofon MC Quintet Red delivers open, dynamic sound with a slight touch of warmth.

The MC Quintet Series is congruent with Ortofon’s unrelenting commitment to providing the most precise and accurate reproduction possible without colouration.

Key Features:

Light weight and durable cartridge body made from a special ABS (Acrylonitrile/Butadiene/Styrene) thermoplastic material

All-purpose cartridge that delivers open, dynamic sound with a slight touch of warmth

Low internal impedance makes the cartridge less sensitive to load and therefore ensures compatibility with the widest range of preamps and transformers
