A homogeneous cartridge whose sound image leans towards smoother reproduction when compared to that of the Ortofon Quintet Red, and whose dynamic strength is moderate if compared to Quintet Bronze, Quintet Blue personifies openness and spaciousness. Its Nude Elliptical diamond is mounted on an aluminum cantilever. Quintet Blue specializes in spaciousness and depth and delivers extraordinary pacing and rhythm. This cartridge doesn't miss a beat!

Incredible Performance for the Cost: Moving-Coil Cartridges Traditionally Command Higher Prices
Like every other cartridge in the Quintet Series, Quintet Blue performs to the highest of standards no matter the music it encounters. Given its price, Quintet Blue also represents a new accomplishment in high-end audio. Seldom, if ever, has a moving-coil cartridge of this caliber been available at this cost. Ortofon's Quintet Series is primed to become one of the most celebrated cartridge lines in recent memory.
