A problem that many DJs have faced is not being able to see exactly where the needle is touching down, especially when working with headshell-mounted cartridges. The Ortofon Concorde has been designed to solve this problem. The pointed design and bright colour helps guide the stylus to a precise point more easily than the Ortofon OM series. The cartridge is directly mounted in tonearms with SME standard sockets, for an ultra-simple attachment.
The scratch version of the Concorde series has been designed with a specially stabilised needles and an output power of 7mW. The Concorde Scratch is reliable and robust, to provide a full and in-your-face sound.
