Product Information

A Very Homogeneous Cartridge

The Quintet Blue's sound image will tend to more smooth reproduction compared to Quintet Red and moderate dynamic strength compared to Quintet Bronze. It features a Nude Elliptical diamond mounted on an aluminum cantilever, and will bring more space, depth, and detail into the sound and is a very good choice for any kind of music, especially rhythmic.

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. They 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.

The MC Quintet Series is a direct result of continued research and innovation, and it's 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 lightweight, impact-resistant material is very suitable for injection-moulding and provides a very durable scratch resistant surface.
  • 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.
