Celebrating the 250th anniversary of Western music & the new millennium, Ortofon chose J.S. Bach's Contrapunctus as their theme. Their long-term experience in analog sound reproduction reflects the theme's inexhaustible record grooves & yields new dimensions of musical enjoyment. Introducing Kontrapunkt b, a, c & h, they showed how analog & original sources of music can still be musically valid. These cartridges feature outstanding channel separation & dynamics, delivering smooth, natural overtones. Kontrapunkt h has a Fine Line elliptical diamond stylus & an aluminum cantilever, & is recommended for enthusiasts who prefer mildness & smoothness. Output is 470mV with 99.9999% pure silver coils & neodymium magnet.
