Ortofon has produced excellent phono cartridges and styli for over 100 years and is a leading manufacturer of precision hi-fi products. This includes tonearms, headshells, high-end audio cables, as well as turntable and vinyl accessories.

Cartridges range from the entry-level 2M and Quintet series, mid-level SPU, Cadenza and Royal series up to the ultimate uncompromising Windfeld, Xpression, Century and MC Anna models

Ortofon was founded by Danish engineers, Axel Petersen and Arnold Poulsen in 1918 as the Electrical Phono Film Company.

The company was initially financed and managed by experienced businessmen with the aim to explore the potential of creating truly high-class recordings. In a simple surrounding, Peterson, Poulsen and a handful of staff set out to achieve the impossible.

Most Ortofon’s products relate to analogue and turntables and as the largest global producer of MM phono cartridges, they have a long history of producing top quality products. Due to the outstanding quality, many hifi manufacturers pre-install Ortofon cartridges on their turntable.

Ortofon began by making soundtracks for movies, but in 1948 they moved into cartridge manufacturing with their first moving coil cartridge. They have now developed and manufactured over 300 different cartridges.

They employ over 95 people selling products internationally with over 60 importers and Sales subsidiaries in America and Japan. Ortofon’s unit in Nakskov, south Denmark boasts contemporary gear operated by knowledgeable workers, so craftsmanship is consistently conveyed to excellent standards.

Ortofon's growth and significant social impact has been commended by former-Prime Minister of Denmark, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, who visited the factory in 2015. The brand works closely with DTU Mechanical Engineering within the EU Seventh Framework and Horizon 2020 Programme for Research and Innovation.

Being based in a country known for its strong legacy in acoustics and numerous other high-end manufacturers gave Ortofon a competitive edge. Today, Ortofon is a large manufacturer, producing their world renowned cartridges with 500,000 sold annually.

Ortofon's key technological specialities are in acoustics, materials, technology and micromechanics facilitated by their own engineers supported with sturdy acoustic experience in their R&D department.
