Even before the launch of the Concorde MkII, Ortofon have always studied the feedback of our customers and how they utilize their products. Skilled DJs demand specialized tools that can help them push their creativity to the edge – consistently testing the boundaries in the realm of performance. Understanding this and reflecting our extensive experience in industrial design and technological know-how, Ortofon present the new Ortofon VNL cartridge – a model tailored uniquely to the unrelenting demands of modern turntablists and portablists.
- Comes pre installed with Stylus VNL II -
The VNL features a spherical stylus which is perfect for tough groove handling. Furthermore, it reduces record wear when scratching and back-cueing to an absolute minimum. The broad stance of the VNL features solid and robust design elements characteristic to Ortofon, with colors meticulously selected to emphasize sturdiness and DJ aesthetics: the cartridge body has been designed to provide easy mounting and alignment on a variety of headshells.
The VNL series in short can be described as the spiritual successor to the ever popular Shure M447 mixing cartridge and looks to become the new staple cartridge for scratching DJ's.
To accommodate for the various needs of DJ mixing, the VNL cartridge comes with 3 styli options.
Output voltage at 1000Hz, 5cm/sec: 6 mV
Channel separation at 1kHz: 20 dB
Frequency response 20 Hz - 20 kHz: 2/+4 dB
Tracking ability at 315 Hz at recommended tracking force:
VNL I: 100 μm
VNL II: 90 μm
VNL III: 90 μm
Compliance, dynamic lateral:
VNL I: 16 μm/m N
VNL II: 15 μm/m N
VNL III: 14 μm/m N
