Ortofon made the world’s first moving coil cartridge in 1948 and quickly became the world's leading specialist and a developer of acclaimed phono cartridges with a philosophy to provide the most faithful and accurate musical reproduction as possible, without colouring the sound.
Since then Ortofon cartridges have continued to evolve with Ortofon designing the first moving magnet cartridge in 1969, the most popular Ortofon Concorde cartridge for DJ professionals in 1995 and just recently, a revolutionary way of constructing and designing cartridges.
Delivering highly accurate sound reproduction, every Ortofon cartridge from the simplest stylus to the most elegantly engineered moving coil cartridge is designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Utterly dedicated to the manufacture and future development of high quality phono cartridges, it’s no wonder Ortofon is the cartridge brand of choice for DJs and audiophiles alike.
Ever since the very first MM cartridge in 1969, Ortofon has continued to improve their designs with more Sophisticated styli, light and rigid cantilevers, and advanced magnetic circuitry to produce a level of sonic performance quality that has enthralled music lovers and audiophiles all over the world.
Since 1948 Ortofon has introduced over 100 different MC cartridges, all produced to the highest standards. Unlike other types of phono cartridges, the high degree of craftsmanship involved is one of Ortofon's greatest secrets with each of the four coils containing up to 24 turns of hand wound wire –each thinner than a human hair.
So for the very best in vinyl record reproduction, there’s nothing quite like an Ortofon moving coil cartridge.
