Ortofon Celebrates 95th Anniversary With the World-Beating MC A95 MC Phono Cartridge: Wide-Open Sound, Finite Detail, Sterling Clarity, Natural and Lifelike Musicality

Field Stabilizing Element and Wide Range Damping System Among Features of Reference-Class Ortofon A95 Moving-Coil Phono Cartridge: Stunning Analog Performance and Excellent Compatibility

Ortofon commemorates its 95th anniversary with nothing less than A95, a world-beating MC phono cartridge complete with the unsurpassed Replicant 100 diamond, a neodymium magnet with special armature and Field Stabilizing Element, and Wide Range Damping system. The results: Perspective-shattering analog sound as wide-open as a desert, lifelike as the Mona Lisa, detailed as a microchip, clear as a blue sky, and musical as a famed orchestra. A true masterpiece of performance, engineering, and art, A95 makes no compromises.

Reduced Vibrations, Increased Dynamics, Exceptional Microdynamics 
A95 hits the next level of reference performance by reducing unwanted vibrations and increasing the dynamic capability. Ortofon's extensive knowledge of vibration properties, characteristics in different shapes and materials, competences in magnetism, mechanical design, and new technologies are all optimized here. You will experience lifelike, open, organic sound distinguished by an exceedingly clear midrange. A95 remains extremely musical while paying close attention to microdynamic details with its delicate albeit analytical nature.

Compatible With a Huge Range of Tonearms, Turntables, and Preamplifiers 
With optimal weight and compliance to suit the vast majority of modern tonearms, A95 is compatible with a seemingly endless array of modern contemporary high-end turntable equipment. Low internal impedance makes A95 less sensitive to load and therefore ensures compatibility with an incredibly wide range of preamps and transformers. By combining the utilization of Ortofon's SLM process, patented WRD system, and zero-resonance spikes, the perfect mechanical integration of this cartridge with your tonearm will result in a significant increase in dynamics, resolution, and richness.
