introducing the

MC Quintet Bronze

by Ortofon






“The slim profile of its Nude Fine Line diamond stylus will track even the highest frequency information, making it a must for discerning listeners.

Additionally its larger footprint ensures reduced distortion and record wear.

The sound will be very evenhanded with respect to all aspects. Classical music will be reproduced with power and open space around each of the instruments.

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