The first cartridges to combine the unrivalled Ortofon sound quality with the ruggedness that is a must for professional use.
The Ortofon Pro S Concorde is a good start-up cartridge for all-around purposes, mounted with a spherical diamond. Achieves an output of 5.0 mV.
Several Ortofon technologies make it possible to get high sound quality and low record wear at the high tracking forces that are necessary in disco environments. DJs all over the world claim very high demands to their professional DJ equipment, among which the turntable cartridges play their decisive part by realizing that scratching, back-cueing, and live artistic performance are a big part of the show. Reliability and robustness is vital, when the cartridges night after night have to withstand these demands in environments with extreme sound pressure and vibration.
Scratching and back-cueing impose heavy mechanical stress on the cantilever and its rubber bearing. Therefore, the Ortofon cartridges are equipped with cantilevers made from aluminum tube with increased wall thickness. Special attention has also been paid to the attachment of the bearing and the design of the bearing itself. This means that rough treatment will neither damage this replacement turntable cartridge nor degrade its stability.
