Ortofon MC Quintet Bronze Moving Coil Cartridge

Ortofon

 

Quintet Blue - Moving Coil

The Ortofon MC Quintet Bronze will convey all types of music with the highest level of accuracy, precision and dynamics. Second from the top in this series you can be assured your music will come to life in your living room. The Bronze doesn't favour any part of the audio spectrum leaving you a well rounded and complete cartridge that does a great job of retrieving music from those grooves.


Type: Cartridge & Stylus


The slim profile of its Nude Fine Line diamond stylus will track even the highest frequency information, making it a must for discerning listeners. Additionally its larger footprint ensures reduced distortion and record wear. The sound will be very evenhanded with respect to all aspects. Classical music will be reproduced with power and open space around each of the instruments.

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.
