Ortofon MC Quintet Mono Moving Coil Cartridge
- E-piphany Product Feed
Quintet Mono is a new true Mono from Ortofon. It features Nude Elliptical r/R 8/18µm stylus that is a good solution for playing mono microgroove vinyl records. The Quintet Mono will track perfectly through even worn and damaged records and ensure the surface noise control. Quintet Mono uses a strapped output to deliver the same output signal from both sets of pole pins. This effectively eliminates the need for mono-specific equipment, making it possible to enjoy true mono reproduction on any stereo playback system. Quintet Mono is the best cartridge in the Quintet series to play monophonic records. 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. 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. Output voltage at 1 kHz 5 cm/sec - 0.3 mV Frequency range at -3 dB - 20-25.000 Hz Frequency response 20 Hz - 20 kHz - +/-2.0 dB Tracking ability at 315 Hz at recommended tracking force *) - 70 µm Compliance, dynamic, lateral - 15 µm/mN Stylus type - Nude Elliptical Stylus tip radius - r/R 8/18 µm Tracking force range - 2.1-2.5 g (21-25 mN) Tracking force recommended - 2.3 g (23 mN) Tracking angle - 20º *) Typical value Internal impedance, DC resistance - 5 Ohm Recommended load impedance - >20 Ohm Cartridge body material - ABS/Aluminium Coil wire material - Pure 4-nines silver/Ag Cartridge colour - White Cartridge weight - 9 g
