Ortofon Quintet Black S is the best example of Quintet’s overall excellence graced with a Nude Shibata diamond and considered one of the best stylus profiles available, mounted on a high-performance Sapphire 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 though-out the spectrum, including even the most high-frequency groove information.
Ease of use
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 head shell.
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.
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. We 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.
Precise & Accurate
The MC Quintet Series is a direct result of our continued research and innovation. The MC Quintet Series 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 light-weight, impact resistant material is very suitable for injection-moulding and provides a very durable scratch resistant surface.
Revisit Your Vinyl
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 preamps and transformers. It is our aim to bring our customers many hours of new and surprising experiences in listening to their precious vinyl collection.
'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)
