The Ortofon Concorde MKII Club comes in a cool and stylish black and yellow finish making it look the part on any DJ turntable. The concorde club uses a slightly different stylus type to the other cartridges in the MKII Concorde range as it has a special elliptical stylus that has a much better frequency response than the spherical stylus on the other cartridges.
CONCORDE CLUB ENSURES THE BEST POSSIBLE SOUND QUALITY, INCREASED OUTPUT VOLTAGE FOR POWERFUL, ENERGETIC SOUND.
The CLUB boasts the best specifications and best sound, making it an ideal choice for Club DJs in any environment: studio, broadcast or club.
The CLUB features Special Elliptic stylus that allows for detailed sound quality: Special Elliptic
stylus fits better in the groove and therefore has more contact area with the groove itself, extracting more intricate details, than is possible with a Spherical diamond.
The CLUB’s 8 mV output voltage requires less gain from the preamps, providing cleaner sound
reproduction and less susceptibility to feedback in live environments.
The CLUB is also recommended for digitalizing purpose: it provides optimal quality and extracts every last detail from vinyl when transferring vinyl to any digital storage media.
Since the launch of the Concorde, we have constantly been listening to the feedback of our customers to continuously improve our processes and products. Reflecting our extensive experience in industrial design and technological know-how, today, the time has come to present you the new awesome Concorde MkII.
If it's playback and sound quality that are your priority, I found this cart and stylus a noticeable upgrade over my older Pro S Concorde. It sounds incredibly clean and detailed.
