Ortofon Concorde MKII ELITE Premium Moving Magnet Cartridge (Single)

The Ortofon ELITE MKII is a premium Moving Magnet cartridge, based on the legacy of the Ortofon Concorde MkII Series. Owing to the number of components’ upgrades, the ELITE achieves a new level of sound quality. One not previously found in the DJ-categorized cartridges.

Luxury Design

The Concorde Elite features a new, special-molded stylus body with real gold plating. This adds luxury to the famous Concorde design. Encased by the gold is a Nude Elliptical Diamond mounted on a rigid aluminium cantilever. The Nude Elliptical Diamond stylus, normally used in HiFi cartridges, delivers a sound so powerful and detailed, that you will experience a remarkable level of live performance.

Nude Elliptical Diamond

Additionally, the Nude Elliptical Diamond allows a smaller moving mass, which guarantees an improved and detailed sound quality. The slim profile of the Nude Elliptical Diamond makes it able to follow the groove oscillations more accurately. Furthermore, it can extract more intricate details and track even the highest frequency information.

Concorde MKII ELITE’s Cantilever

The cantilever needs to accommodate the perfect compromise between lightweight and high strength. In fact, this requires great ingenuity in the design, as well as the choice of materials. The properties of the Rigid 750 µm aluminium-Magnesium cantilever, exclusively developed for the Concorde ELITE, ensure that the stylus picks up the groove vibrations with a stable and accurate trace performance and provides the ideal interface between the stylus and armature.

Unique Coil System

In the armature, you’ll find a specially developed Coil System transmitting the diamond’s movements to deliver an optimised output. Also, the unique Coil System provides the ELITE with a powerful, full-bodied sound of high quality and high output.

Rubber Suspension

To ensure superior tracking performance, a new Rubber Suspension is on board. The new rubber compound formula has been developed uniquely for the Concorde ELITE to attain the desired characteristics for an extraordinary performance of the cartridge. Also, the richer, fuller sound conveys the music in the most lifelike manner while paying close attention to damping of excess brightness.
