 Quintet Mono Nude Elliptical Cartridge Ortofon - Brisbane HiFi

Quintet Mono Nude Elliptical Cartridge

Ortofon



The Quintet Mono is a new true Mono from Ortofon.

It features Nude Elliptical r/R 8/18µm stylus that is a good solution for playing mono microgroove vinyl records. The Quintet Mono will track perfectly through even worn and damaged records and ensure the surface noise control.

Quintet Mono uses a strapped output to deliver the same output signal from both sets of pole pins. This effectively eliminates the need for mono-specific equipment, making it possible to enjoy true mono reproduction on any stereo playback system. 

 

Quintet Mono is the best cartridge in the Quintet series to play monophonic records.
