The Absolute Sound 2012 Product of the Year

The Ortofon Anna MC cartridge represents the highest caliber of engineering, state-of-the-art manufacturing, and an unchanging commitment to reveal the true emotions of music. Anna strikes the perfect balance of precision and natural tonality. It will ignite the analog lust in your heart.

With the Anna, Ortofon dedicates this new flagship cartridge to the opera singer Anna Netrebko, a virtuoso whose performance displays a formidable technical arsenal of endless versatility. The output impedance of 6 ohm and a low-to-medium output voltage of 0.2 mV make Anna a perfect partner for most MC phono preamps and step-up transformers. Anna focuses on providing music in its entirety without compromise, offering an ideal balance of precision and musicality to provide an engaging experience on a whole new level. With fine attention to both micro and macro dynamics combined with fluid tonality and texture, the Anna will shatter the boundaries of recorded music forever.
