Ortofon strives to provide an unbeatable musical experience through its innovations, technical prowess, and passion. The MC Diamond exemplifies this goal; its titanium body, magnet system, diamond cantilever, and rubber suspension deliver unparalleled performance. Leif Johannsen, Ortofon’s Chief Officer of Acoustics and Research asserts that this cartridge provides “the most authentic vinyl experience in the world”. Ortofon works to develop the world's best phonograph cartridges to let you feel the music, and the MC Diamond does just that. Its Wide Range Damping System (WRD), featuring an enhanced rubber suspension, along with a Selective Laser Melting (SLM) body, optimized magnet system, and Replicant 100 diamond, ensures distortion and resonance are virtually eliminated, allowing for unparalleled sound.
