The Ortofon Concorde series is designed for direct mounting on SME-style tonearms. These cartridges are commonly used with DJ-style turntables featuring S-shaped arms, such as Technics 1210 turntables, and can be easily slid onto the tonearm without the need for screws, unlike traditional cartridges. While they reflect their DJ heritage, these SME-style cartridges also deliver the high-fidelity audio quality desired by audiophiles.

The Concorde Music Black

The Concorde Music Black phono cartridge is designed to deliver a true-to-life musical performance, presenting audio as the artist intended. This is achieved through its high-end nude Shibata stylus profile, known for its accuracy, durability and will pick up more fine detail in your records. 

The key features of the Concorde Music Black include:

  • Nude Shibata Diamond Stylus: This advanced stylus profile offers a notable step up in resolution compared to the Bronze, ensuring you hear every detail across the entire spectrum.
  • Direct Upgrade Path: The Concorde Music Black provides a direct upgrade path to the pinnacle of the series, the Black LVB 250, making it an excellent choice for those looking to progressively enhance their audio setup.
  • True-to-Groove Design: Engineered to be as faithful to the record groove as possible, this cartridge delivers an authentic listening experience.
  • Direct-Mounting for SME-Style Tonearms: Mounting directly into the tonearm from turntables manufactures like Technics, Audio Technica, Thorens and Pro-Ject's with S-Shape arms brings the high-fidelity audio experience back to its roots combining the sleek design and ease of use that made the original Concorde cartridges a game-changer in the hi-fi world.
  • Interchangeable Styli: As part of the versatile Concorde Music series, the stylus can be easily swapped, allowing audiophiles to tailor their listening experience to their preferences and upgrade through the series from Red to Black.

The Concorde Music series combines the sleek design and ease of use that made the original Concorde cartridges a revolutionary choice in the hi-fi world. It offers something for every individual and every genre, providing a superior upgrade path for enhancing your vinyl experience. Whether you're a long-time audiophile or a former DJ transitioning to home listening, the Concorde Music series ensures unparalleled sound quality and an immersive listening adventure.

Discover the Concorde Music Black for an audio experience that brings the high-fidelity sound back to its roots, faithfully reproducing music just as the artist intended.
