Ortofon MC Quintet Blue Moving Coil Cartridge

Ortofon

Quintet Blue - Moving Coil

The Quintet Blue will bring more space, depth and detail to your sound. The cartridge is a fantastic choice for any kind of music, especially rhythmic genres. Sound reproduction will tend toward a smoother presentation when comparing it  to the Quintet Red and moderate dynamic strength compared to Quintet Bronze. It features a Nude Elliptical diamond mounted on an aluminium cantilever.



Ease of Use

Top-mounting of the Quintet cartridges is easy and secure using the screws supplied. The aluminuim frame has threaded mounting holes and is fitted easily with the 5mm or 7mm screws depending on the thickness of the headshell.

The Quintet series’ right angles, straight lines, stylus visibility and ample distance between the record surface and the cartridge’s bottom will make it easy to mount and align the cartridge and tonearm correctly. The Quintet Series gives excellent results with most common tonearms.
