To many audiophiles, vinyl records have a sound quality that is far greater than CDs and MP3s. Growing demand for the ability to transcribe vinyl to digital formats prompted Ortofon, a part of the turntable industry since 1918, to create the Arkiv cartridge. This DJ cartridge is specially designed to provide optimized sound quality specifically for recording purposes, especially on USB turntables which tend to have budget cartridges. One notable difference that sets the Ortofon Arkiv cartridge apart from a budget needle is the shape of the diamond which sits in the groove. The Arkiv uses an elliptical stylus, which is carefully cut to obtain a shape that is able to make better contact with the groove walls, therefore dramatically extracting more fine details from the vinyl recording. It boasts clear and accurate sound reproduction and remarkable stereo imaging, making it perfectly suited for sampling, transcription, and numerous other professional applications.

Comments about Ortofon OM ARKIV Single Cartridge:
this is a nice joint to rock for sampling heads... it's clean and offers great details especially when u come across breaks... if you have a very dusty record, clean it as well as possible because the crackles and pops become more apparent... id buy it again
