Created with sketchtool.


Since designing its first moving coil cartridge in 1948, Ortofon has made more than 100 different models over the years. This experience shines through in the Quintet Blue, one of five models in the new range.

It’s the step-up option in a family that’s topped off by the premium Black cartridge, with its fancy Nude Shibata stylus tip and sapphire cantilever. At around half the money, the Blue makes do with an elliptical tip and aluminium cantilever, but beyond that, it shares much with its pricier sibling.



- It features a Nude Elliptical diamond mounted on an aluminium cantilever.
- The Quintet Blue will bring more space, depth and detail into the sound and is a very good choice for any kind of music, especially rhythmic.
