Quintet Series Shape and design

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.

Each of the five Quintet Series cartridges has its own individual sonic expression, and all five models together represent the ensemble of five classic variations:

  • MC Quintet Mono is a true mono cartridge for playing mono microgroove vinyl records
  • MC Quintet Red is an all-purpose cartridge that delivers open, dynamic sound with a slight touch of warmth
  • MC Quintet Blue adds more dynamics and resolution, sounds more open and reproduces more details
  • MC Quintet Bronze adds even more details and resolution but in a very evenhanded way that pays respect to all elements
  • MC Quintet Black S is the best of everything, true to the groove with resolution and accurate insight into each recording
