Ortofon Rondo Bronze MC Phono Cartridge
*Few years old but hardly use
Rondo cartidges are made of wood, a natural and unique material for acoustic products. Wood is an excellent material for a cartridge, but difficult to use. So when we were informed from Japan about a new moulding material based on 55% grinded wood in a resin matrix, that was to be processed by injection moulding just like thermoplastic material, the chance of making even more complicated structures in the design became of high interest.
The well-known Japanese tradition in decorative art and lacquering techniques also became of interest for the presentation of a quite new look for the Rondo models.
The sound from the Rondo Bronze cartridge is very detailed in its spectrum and differentiates the sound source in a refined and homogenous manner. Big orchestral music will be reproduced powerful yet well controlled and open up space around the instruments.
