IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE SOUND TRACK

Ortofon has always been a leading company in the field of sound reproduction. Founded in Copenhagen in 1918, Ortofon started by creating technology which served as the basis for adding a soundtrack to the silent movies of the early 1920s.

In 1948, the company developed the first moving coil cartridge, and since then Ortofon has developed and manufactured more than 300 different cartridges with Ortofon’s latest being the Concorde MkII Universal Series.

 

THE FAMOUS CONCORDE DESIGN

In 1979 the famous Concorde design was introduced, earning the company a Danish Industrial Design Award for its Low Mass Concorde integrated cartridge/headshell configuration.

The elegant slimline Concorde design allowed direct connection into any tonearm with a standard bayonet mount and incorporated overhang and vertical adjustment facilities.

The new Concorde made it easier to mount and replace the cartridge on the tonearm.

1984, 1979, and 2018. In the mid of 1980’s Ortofon began to develop and manufacture DJ cartridges for Club, Hip-hop and Scratch application. The silver-colored Concorde Pro and OM Pro, which combined sound quality with the ruggedness for the professional DJs, were introduced in 1984.

 The new Pro models were given special features that enabled them to cope with the stresses they were exposed to in vibrating discotheques: among others, a stiff stylus suspension which made it possible to apply a high tracking force.
