The world’s oldest and most experienced cartridge manufacturer, was founded in 1918 by two Danish engineers, Axel Petersen and Arnold Poulsen. The first Moving Coil cutterhead was produced as early as 1945, and the Moving Coil principle was then further developed to enable production of, first, mono cartridges and, later, also stereo cartridges.
With a range that now spans entry level HiFi through to audiophile products and a superb range of DJ and professional cartridges Ortofon are, without doubt, the worlds largest and most dedicated manufacturer of analogue reproduction systems.
Currently investing around £500,000 per annum in R&D and new machinery, Ortofon are committed to the future of record playing and intend staying at the very forefront of the market.
Ardhowen Hifi is very proud of being able to offer this very fine range of Moving-Magnet and Moving-Coil cartridges
Ortofon 2M Red Moving Magnet Cartridge
The 2M is developed together with the Danish designer "MøllerJensen Design" from Copenhagen, Denmark - the same designer who designed the award winning cartridge MC Jubilee and the Kontrapunktseries.
Ortofon OM5E Moving Magnet Cartridge
The OM5E is the middle concord MM cartridge in the OM range and a long term recommendation for all sorts of vintage to modern turntables.
The Ortofon 2M Black Moving Magnet Cartridge
The 2M Black is the new moving magnet flagship from Ortofon. The 2M black is graced with a Shibata diamond stylus - the same diamond as on the acclaimed MC Jubilee. Its slim, highly polished profile allows an exceedingly wide contact area to the groove walls and ensures notably detailed reproduction throughout the spectrum, including even the most high frequency groove information.
