introducing the

MC Quintet Blue

by Ortofon






“The Quintet Blue’s sound image will tend to more smooth reproduction compared to Quintet Red and moderate dynamic strength compared to Quintet Bronze.

The Quintet Blue will bring more space, depth and detail into the sound and is a very good choice for any kind of music, especially rhythmic.

The ST-7 transformer is a perfect match for the MC Quintet Blue cartridge.”
