With a Shibata diamond mounted on a Sapphire cantilever, the Ortofon Quintet Black S Moving Coil Cartridge will facilitate high frequency groove information with precise insight.

Ortofon Quintet Black S Moving Coil Cartridge succeeds the previous model Quintet Black, with a clean and comprehensive reproduction through-out the spectrum, volume and soundstage.

MC Quintet Black S features a Shibata diamond that comes mounted on a performance-driven Sapphire cantilever. Sapphire, being one of the best cantilever options, paves the path for smoothest possible automatic transfer of the pulse from the stylus to the coil system. One of the best stylus profiles available to date, this Shibata stylus facilitates most high frequency groove information with resolution and precise insight into each recording. Shibata has a compact, well-polished structure. This strategically designed profile makes sure that a considerably wide area is available for contact with the walls of the groove, and results in a quality reproduction spread over the entire spectrum.

Ortofon Quintet Black S is quite easy to operate. Included screws make the top-mounting of this moving coil cartridge simple and dependable. Precision-grounded threaded mounting holes in the durable aluminium frame facilitate easy fitting. This cartridge is supplied with 5mm and 7mm screws to match the varying thickness of the headshell. The installation process and accurate alignment of cartridge and tonearm gets further simplified with the spacious gap between the record surface and the cartridge's bottom, stylus visibility, correct angles, and straight lines.

Body of the Quintet Black S Moving Coil Cartridge from Ortofon comes made from special ABS thermoplastic material. This scratch resistant material is not just very durable, but it is lightweight and impact resistant as well. Presence of Neodymium magnets augments output optimisation. The Quintet Black S is compatible with a wide variety of preamps and transformers, thanks to its low internal impedance that reduces the cartridge's sensitivity towards load.
