Ortofon Serato S-120 OM Cartridge with SH4 Headshell
The Ortofon-Serato S-120 is the result of two of the coolest companies in the DJ-industry joining forces to co-develop the ultimate performance cartridge.
The Ortofon-Serato S-120 represents a completely new way of constructing and designing cartridges. Its breakthrough patent pending technology has been designed to provide you with maximum freedom for your performance.
An innovative technology, called asymmetric suspension, takes the cartridge performance to the next level. Its superior tracking force ensures the S-120 stays in the groove even under extreme live performance conditions.
In addition, its design achieves an unprecedentedly low level of record wear, which helps protect your valuable vinyl. On top of this, the S-120 is capable of providing a level of sound quality never thought possible from a modern DJ cartridge.
Ortofon Serato S-120 OM DJ Cartridge with a patent pending design that will virtually “hug the grooves” of a record using a unique suspension system that the two companies have co-designed.
All vinyl DJs will benefit from the extreme tracking ability delivered by a revolutionary new cantilever suspension.
Due to its new design and patent pending technology, the S-120 offers superior tracking ability. It sets new standards in stability and is capable of tracking the most extreme cuttings.
The S-120 rides more evenly in a groove with less bias or skate than any other cartridge design and has an exceptionally low degree of wear on the vinyl, making it perfect for collectible vinyl, control vinyl and 12” dance singles – especially louder pressings that are prone to jumping out of the groove.
