Ortofon MC Quintet Black Cartridge



The Quintet Black is the best example of Quintet’s overall excellence

The Quintet Black is graced with a Nude Shibata diamond, considered one of the best stylus profiles available, mounted on a high-performance Boron cantilever. The Shibata’s slim, highly polished profile allows an exceedingly wide contact area to the walls of the groove and ensures detailed and pure reproduction thoughout the spectrum, including even the most high frequency groove information.

 The Quintet Black will be unfettered by musical genre and will give the closest approach within the Quintet series to Ortofon’s true accuracy in sound.
