The Ortofon Century MC cartridge

Hundred years ago, Ortofon began its great adventure in the phono cartridges design! To properly celebrate its hundredth birthday, Ortofon is releasing this year an exceptional cartridge: the Century MC cartridge!


Ortofon Century MC cartridge

This Ortofon Century cartridge illustrates the entire Danish manufacturer’s know-how in terms of low output MC cartridges manufacturing: body made out of titanium, laser welding, high-purity copper coils, cobalt and iron alloy for the generator… All of these components enable outstanding performances!

In terms of restitution, “outstanding” would be once again the appropriate word… Thanks to its wonderful Replican 100 stylus, this Century offers such a playing precision and an exclusive tracking which does not exist on others stylus profiles! However, it is obvious that the Ortofon Century cannot be afford by everyone… But the investment is worth it!
