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's models. Since 1948 Ortofon has introduced about 300 different MC models, with our latest being the Quintet Series.
Contrary to other types of phono catridges, the moving coil principle is not suited for mass production. Each of the four coils contains between 11 and 24 turns of wire, depending on model, and has to be wound by hand under a microscope. The high degree of craftsmanship involved is one of the "secrets" behind Ortofon's reputation.
