Product Information

Ortofon Iconic Cartridge

Having celebrated many of previous anniversaries by launching innovative products, naturally, the approaching centennial year called for some grand designs and the relaunch of the cartridge that is emblematic of Ortofon’s pioneering approach to design – the Concorde. With a tip of the hat to the Concorde’s origins, Ortofon releases in a limited edition a Hi-Fi Concorde version: The Concorde Century. 

The Concorde Century uses a silver-plated copper wire and a Nude Fine Line diamond stylus, which slim profile will track even the highest frequency information. Additionally, its larger footprint ensures reduced distortion and record wear. The Concorde Century has a full, relaxed and homogenous sound with space, depth and detail – a very good choice for any kind of music.

hi, I have a thorens td147 turntable and would like to change the stylus..will this Concord century fit the td147 or is it better to get the ortofon 540 mk11???.
morie on Apr 26, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The TD147 has a detachable head shell which will accommodate any standard mount cartridge. If you have an Ortofon 540 cartridge installed a replacement stylus is available. The Concord and 540 are both excellent cartridges and will track very well on the Thorens tone arm. The Concord series is a newer series than the 540 style of cartridge. The 540 received excellent reviews but is not a current model. Given the lower mass of the Concord Century, it would be a compatible, and desirable upgrade.
