The Ortofon event night was a huge success! Records were spun, grooves were navigated, Rush was mercilessly criticised and laughs were had.

  Our goal of demonstrating the stark differences between the breadth of Ortonfon's models was achieved with the help of Leigh and Gabrielle from Interdyn, plenty of fantastic food and a few drinks.

  In terms of the question of Moving Magnet vs Moving Coil cartridges, we definitively demonstrated the value for money of the Quintet range.  The standout favourite of most listeners being the Quintet Blue as bang for buck, and the new Black S for raw performance. 

  If you missed the event, fear not! The Ortofon Cartridge Lab turntable rig will be a permanent fixture in the shop.  Feel free to wander in and we can demonstrate these same differences for you in a time that suits you.  Plus, you can bring your own vinyl!

  A big thank you to everyone who came along, Leigh, Gabrielle and our friends from Tree 83 for the food (It was really good food!).  To join us at our next in-store event, be sure to subscribe to our newsletter (bottom of the homepage), and keep an eye on our Twitter/Facebook.
