Wide Range Damping System

Nothing added. Nothing taken away. Accuracy level

Featuring a titanium body, optimized magnet system, diamond cantilever, and a new rubber suspension, the MC Diamond provides an entirely new level of experience for audiophiles.

“This is recorded music like you’ve never heard it before. The most authentic vinyl experience in the world,” - Leif Johannsen, Ortofon’s Chief Officer of Acoustics and Research.

Ortofon Replicant 100 Stylus

The MC Diamond makes use of the Ortofon 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.

Re-engineered to perfection Rubber suspension

For the new MC Diamond cartridge, the Ortofon Wide Range Damping System (WRD) has been re-engineered to include an enhanced rubber suspension, specially developed in-house to ensure exceptional tracking, and virtually eliminates distortions and resonance. This feature allows for optimal interaction between compliance and damping, improved stability and playback, and unparalleled sound quality. Created using a new rubber compound that utilizes Multi Wall Carbon Nanotube technology (MWCNT), this new rubber suspension provides improved damping and enhances the overall performance of the MC Diamond Cartridge.

Unequalled transparency Cantilever

The MC Diamond uses a solid Diamond Cantilever that, in combination with the Ortofon Replicant 100 diamond, offers extreme transparency, speed, and responsiveness beyond any other combination. 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 analog reproduction, presenting greater inner detail, subtlety, and depth like never before.
