Ortofon was founded in 1918 in Denmark. The focus was first on sound-film technology, but at the end of World War 2, the company started to focus on records and began to produce audio cartridges and pioneered the use of moving coil technology. Nowadays, most of the Ortofon customers are DJs. In the mid-1980s, the original Concorde cartridges changed the landscape of vinyl DJing. Ortofon recently embarked on a mission to take the Concorde design back to ground zero - collaborating with some of the world’s top vinyl DJs to create a new design which would fulfil the needs of the modern professional DJ - resulting in the Concorde MKII series. And for the Hi-Fi enthusiasts Ortofon have the best cartridges on offer for every music lover, including the acclaimed 2M series. So if you are looking for a cartridge which is compatible with authentic vinyl records or digital control vinyl, or a needle that is suitable for scratching and back-cueing or a replacement stylus, Ortofon has it!
