Product Description

The Ortofon MC Quintet Black is the pinnacle of the Quintet range, offering the best detail and pure reproduction throughout the musical production. The Quintet Black utilises a Nude Shibata diamond, which is considered to be one of the finest stylus profiles available, mounted on a high-performance Boron cantilever. 

The slim and highly polished profile permits for a very wide contact area to the walls of the record's groove to ensure detail, resolution and imaging is paramount. The Quintet Black is suitable for use with all genres and will offer the most accurate sound of the Quintet range, offering insight into any recording.

Press Reviews

  • 'Very well mannered, but sprightly sounding cartridge from respected Danish manufacturer' (Hi-Fi World, May 2014)

  • 'The Quintet Black is something of an audiophile bargain. It seemed to deal with any type of music that I played through it with decorum and an air of quality that is unusual at this price point' (Hi-Fi World, May 2014)

  • 'It is a very good cartridge that will, I am sure, be extremely successful and will be a welcome addition to any hi-fi system' (Hi-Fi World, May 2014)
