The Ortofon ST-70 is reserved for discerning audiophiles and music lovers. The ST-70 combines fine components along with world-class engineering, for unparalleled sound reproduction.
Starting with high-quality Lundahl™ transformers, surrounded by specialized mu-metal shielding, listeners can be assured that every detail in a complex array of notes is reproduced with utter purity, with freedom from internal and external sources of interference. These two items combined make the ST-70 transformer one of the quietest, most revealing transformers.
Featuring a dual mono design, the ST-70 provides discrete circuitry for each channel, resulting in the elimination of crosstalk and possible distortions. This results in cleaner, clearer reproduction with substantially increased stereo imaging. Regardless of the composition being played, the ST-70's expansive stereo separation provides lifelike realism, and accurate tonal balance devoid of coloration.
