Let Your Vinyl LP Collection Soar to New Heights with the Ortofon Concorde Century MM Phono Cartridge

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No. It's the Ortofon Concorde Century MM phono cartridge, an utterly distinctive and super-cool-looking analog instrument whose original incarnation dates back four decades and resulted in designer Jan Tragardh receiving the Danish Industrial Design Award for his work on the low-mass cartridge. While the model remains eminently popular among DJs, years of evolution and remodeling have led to Concorde Century, a particularly robust tracker that stays in the LP groove no matter the demands.

Limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide, Concorde Century employs silver-plated copper wire and a nude fine-line diamond stylus to complement its large footprint. Sonically, Concorde Century delivers full, cohesive, and detailed performance marked by exquisite depth and clarity. An all-rounder with any type of music, it also mounts easily and directly on S-shaped tonearms with a universal/SME connector. With the flashy Concorde Century in your analog chain, your vinyl LP collection will take flight and soar to new heights.

"[This cartridge] is something really special. Its fine-line stylus and high compliance make this so much more than a fashion statement. With its roots in the OM 40 Super, many say that it's the best MM from Ortofon."
