"I'm forever amazed at what can be teased out of the vinyl groove and just how far we can go to make the most of playing LP and the A95 is a great illustration of how modern materials and technologies are being used to advance this process"
HIFI WORLD SEPT 2015
Ortofon is proud to launch the MC A95, a world class moving coil cartridge to commemorate the 95th anniversary of Ortofon’s technical leadership in the audio industry. With the MC A95, the bar is raised for its predecessor, the MC A90. The MC A95 not only celebrates the past 95 years of Ortofon, first and foremost it also makes history by significantly raising the standards by which sound reproduction is measured, making it a celebration of sound itself.
The new Ortofon MC A95 has gone to the next level by reducing unwanted vibrations and increasing the dynamic capability of the cartridge. Our extensive knowledge of vibration properties, characteristics in different shapes and materials, competences in magnetism, mechanical design and new technologies has been applied for optimization of the MC A95.Those who choose to adopt the MC A95 will experience the lifelike, open sound, with exceedingly clear midrange for a presentation that is unparalleled. The MC A95 remains extremely musical while paying close attention to micro dynamic details, with its delicate, but also analytical nature.
Lovers of music will take note of a truly organic and encapsulating experience which transcends the boundaries of recording and undeniably blurs the distinction between what is live and what is recorded.Flexibility and performance with a range of compatibilityWith optimal weight and compliance to suit the vast majority of modern tonearms, the MC A95 is easily compatible with a seemingly endless array of modern contemporary high-end turntable equipment.Low internal impedance makes the MC A95 less sensitive to load and therefore ensures compatibility with Ortofon ST-80 SE transformer, as well as with the widest range of preamps and transformers.By combining the utilization of the SLM process, our patented WRD system and zero-resonance spikes, we are confident that the perfect mechanical integration of this cartridge with your tonearm will result in a significant and breathtaking increase in dynamics, resolution, and richness in detail.
I've read a lot about this cartridge and it's been unanimously positive. It lives up to the praise. The price (and service) at Analogue Seduction makes it a no-brainer.
