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 Red

The Ortofon Concorde Music Red has been intricately designed to provide a superior vinyl listening experience and is a great sound and entry into the concorde family with a captivating sound. It is equipped with a sophisticated quad-coil generating system and split-pole pins that enhance channel balance and separation. Notable features of this product are:

  • Upgradeable Design: The stylus can be easily upgraded throughout the Concorde Music series up to the Concorde Music Black LVB 250, offering flexibility and long-term value.
  • Exclusive Ortofon Rubber Suspension: Developed in-house by Ortofon, this unique rubber compound is crucial for the cartridge's high performance, enhancing sound quality.
  • Immersive Sound Experience: The cartridge brings out the subtle nuances in your favorite recordings, providing an inviting soundstage with increased resolution and detail.
  • 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.

The Concorde Music series, with its interchangeable styli, offers a versatile choice for audiophiles. Whether you're a seasoned audiophile or a former DJ transitioning to home listening, the Concorde Music Red allows for a superior upgrade path, enhancing your vinyl experience.
