Industry news!!!! A CENTURY OF ACCURACY IN SOUND- A newly developed Anniversary moving coil cartridge, the Ortofon MC Century coming soon.

In October 2018 Ortofon will celebrate 100 years of business in audio industry. Reaching 100 years is an accomplishment that Ortofon wants to celebrate. Ortofon is set to release a new flagship moving coil cartridge to celebrate the company’s 100th anniversary.

The new MC Century exemplifies the current state of the cartridge art, Ortofon claims.
The MC Century represents the absolute top of Moving Coil cartridges. This state of the art product is truly exemplary of the highest degree of performance possible in contemporary analogue playback technology.

The MC Century represents numerous Ortofon design elements and ideals:

  • The housing and the body of the cartridge are made in Titanium with SLM technique
  • High performance iron-cobalt alloy is applied for some parts of the magnet system.
  • The armature damping system provides complete elimination of unwanted resonance.
  • Ortofon Replicant 100 diamond, thin and light, with an extraordinarily large contact surface, tracing accuracy unparalleled by any other needle in existence.
  • The crystal structure and exceptional hardness of the new Diamond cantilever ensures the best possible interface between the stylus and the armature.
  • The combination of Nude Ortofon Replicant 100 diamond on Diamond cantilever provides extremely responsive and transparent sound reproduction.
  • Key stats include an output voltage of 0,2 mV, an internal impedance of 6 ohms, and a recommended load impedance of >10 ohms. The Century MC weighs in at 15 grams 

At S&I we like to keep abreast with industry news. When combined with Ortofon’s world-class knowledge in analogue sound reproduction, the new MC Century will undoubtedly provide sound which is literally unsurpassed and simply has to be experienced.
