Description

Ortofon MC Verismo Moving Coil Cartridge

The name Verismo of the Ortofon MC Verismo Moving Coil Cartridge is derived from the Italian “vero”, meaning “true” and is the Italian for “realism”. Versimo was a post-Romantic operatic genre, that had its origins in an Italian literary movement in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Verismo’s operatic tradition is associated with Italian composers such as Pietro Mascagni, Ruggero Leoncavallo, Umberto Giordano, Francesco Cilea and Giacomo Puccini, who sought to portray the world with greater realism.

 

“…The MC Verismo offers up the most truthful evenhandedness and musical transparency that I can recall from this manufacturer…”www.theabsoultesound.com

Features

Design elements and high-end materials

The Ortofon MC Verismo Moving Coil Cartridge is made in Titanium with the Selective Laser Melting (SLM) technique pioneered by Ortofon. This technique allows for precise control of the density of the body material, allowing for extremely high internal damping.

The MC Verismo makes use of Ortofon’s Replicant 100 diamond. This Line Contact type stylus distinguishes itself by having a narrow and long contact surface, which is as close as possible to the original cutting stylus. This ensures the most accurate reproduction, lowest distortion and extended frequency range.

The addition of a solid Diamond cantilever provides the best possible interface between the stylus and armature, owing to its hardness and crystal structure. The improvements found in the use of a Diamond cantilever have redefined the boundaries of analogue reproduction, presenting greater inner detail, subtlety, and depth like never before.
