    The Quintet Red is a perfect introduction to the world of Ortofon moving coils.
    It features an Elliptical diamond which is cut and polished to Ortofon’s standards.

    This entry-level MC cartridge has very high price-to-performance ratio and is a perfect all-rounder for the newcomers to the world of Moving Coil cartridges.

    MC Quintet Red is an all-purpose cartridge that delivers open, dynamic sound with a slight touch of warmth.

    The ST-7 transformer is a perfect match for the MC Quintet Red cartridge.

    LH-4000 headshell is specially recommended for MC Quintet cartridges series. 

    Top-mounting of the Quintet cartridges is easy and secure using the screws supplied. The aluminuim frame has threaded mounting holes and is fitted easily with the 5mm or 7mm screws depending on the thickness of the headshell.  

    The Quintet series’ right angles, straight lines, stylus visibility and ample distance between the record surface and the cartridge’s bottom will make it easy to mount and align the cartridge and tonearm correctly. The Quintet Series gives excellent results with most common tonearms.
