Ortofon Announce New Concorde DJ Cartridges

In October 2018 Ortofon will celebrate a century of business in audio industry. Reaching 100 years is an accomplishment that Ortofon wants to celebrate announcing THE NEW CONCORDE GENERATION - newly redesigned models, tailored uniquely to the demands of modern turntable DJs.

There are 5 cartridges in the series: Mix, DJ, Club, Scratch, and Digital. All models benefit from a replaceable reinforced finger lift, which is easily replaced if broken. The cartridge bodies have been broadened, to offer greater stability during performances. Replacement styli offer a tactile feedback when seating, indicating a snug and secure fit, while a cut-out area in the front allows for far more accurate needle drops. The Concorde MkII’s unique 2-piece body design creates a fresh and attractive aesthetic.

The Concorde Mix offers a budget-friendly, yet high quality option capable of good all-round performance.

the Concorde DJ is considered the jack-of-all-trades, boasting accurate sound reproduction and excellent groove handling.

The Concorde Club features a special Elliptical diamond and offers the best sound quality achievable for traditional vinyl playback and offers an outstanding platform for archival and sampling.

The Concorde Scratch allows turntablist and scratching DJs to achieve new levels of performance with an unprecedented tracking ability and extra high output.

The specially-optimized Concorde Digital offers both of these features with a technology designed to extend the life of timecode vinyl and minimize errors in decoding.
