The Ortofon Quintet Bronze moves into the higher league of the Quintets adding even more detail and resolution but in a very even-handed way that pays respect to all elements. Classical music will be reproduced with power and open space around each of the instruments.
The slim profile of the Bronze’s 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. All types of music will be conveyed with the highest accuracy, precision and dynamics.
Ortofon’s aim is to provide their customers many hours of new and surprising experiences in listening to their precious vinyl collection. 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 models. Since 1948, Ortofon has introduced about 100 different moving coil models, with the latest being the Quintet Series.
Ortofon believe the cartridges in this new series are more than worthy successors to the long line of models that has made Ortofon the global leader in the manufacture and supply of phono cartridges. The MC Quintet Series is a direct result of Ortofon’s continued research and innovation and is congruent with Ortofon’s unrelenting commitment to providing the most precise and accurate reproduction possible without coloration.
A special ABS (Acrylonitrile/Butadiene/Styrene) thermoplastic material is used for manufacturing of the body. This lightweight, impact resistant material is very suitable for injection-moulding and provides a very durable scratch resistant surface. Neodymium magnets are implemented to achieve an optimal output. Low internal impedance makes the cartridge less sensitive to load and therefore ensures compatibility with the widest range of pre-amps and transformers.
Top-mounting of the Quintet cartridges is easy and secure using the screws supplied. The aluminium 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.
