Improving on perfection
Ortofon is proud to launch the MC A95, a world class moving coil cartridge to commemorate the 95th anniversary of Ortofon’s technical leadership in the audio industry.
With the MC A95, the bar is raised for its predecessor, the MCA90. The MC A95 not only celebrates the past 95 years of Ortofon, first and foremost it also makes history by significantly raising the standards by which sound reproduction is measured, making it a celebration of sound itself.
The new Ortofon MC A95 has gone to the next level by reducing unwanted vibrations and increasing the dynamic capability of the cartridge. Our extensive knowledge of vibration properties, characteristics in different shapes and materials, competences in magnetism, mechanical design and new technologies has been applied for optimization of the MC A95.
Those who choose to adopt the MC A95 will experience the lifelike, open sound, with exceedingly clear midrange for a presentation that is unparalleled. The MC A95 remains extremely musical while paying close attention to micro dynamic details, with its delicate, but also analytical nature.
With optimal weight and compliance to suit the vast majority of modern tonearms, the MC A95 is easily compatible with a seemingly endless array of modern contemporary high-end turntable equipment. Low internal impedance makes the MC A95 less sensitive to load and therefore ensures compatibility with a good MC transformer like is found in the Tron Electric phono stages. By combining the utilization of the SLM process, our patented WRD system and zero-resonance spikes, we are confident that the perfect mechanical integration of this cartridge with your tonearm will result in a significant and breathtaking increase in dynamics, resolution, and richness in detail.
