Ortofon is the first name in hi-fi cartridges. Founded in 1918 with the aim of exploring the possibilities of optical hi-fidelity recording, they developed one of the first synchronised sound film systems in the world. After a series of innovations and advancements in technology, the company began to diversify into the burgeoning gramophone industry in the 1940s. Ortofon pioneered the use of moving coil technology in phonograph equipment, with the first cutting head based on this technology being introduced in 1945. From their range of vintage-style mono cartridges to modern designs employing computational resonance analysis and cutting-edge manufacturing techniques, Ortofon have the best cartridges on offer for every music lover.
