Ortofon MC15 Super II cartridge. Brand new – never used Picture and Description:
Brand new unused genuine Danish made Ortofon MC 15 Super Mk II cartridge. Astute observers of the history of fine cartridges will instantly realise what a rarity is being offered here. Some years ago Ortofon released the original MC 15 Super. Sporting a boron cantilever, fine line stylus and Ortofon's famous moving coil sound, this limited release sold out worldwide in a flash. Aided by a couple of rave reviews in the English press at the time, its status was assured overnight. It did not take long for the improved model to arrive which is what's on offer here - the mk 2 version of a minor legend. Speakerbits have secured a very small quantity of brand new MC 15 Super Mk 2 cartridges. They were manufactured in 2010 and are not NOS. This guarantees that the rubber bearings are new and will last ten years or more before they even start to deteriorate. Oh – you didn’t know that? The rubber bearings on any cartridge perish over the years making NOS cartridges a bad idea. The MC 15 Super Mk II features a super fine line stylus, aluminium cantilever and sold new for $AUD495.00 ($USD402.00) some years ago. Read the specs on the attached .pdf. The cantilever will be visually inspected in our warehouse before shipping to ensure that is is not damaged or bent. A sticker will be placed inside the lid of the packaging noting the time and date of the inspection. Why Ortofon? There are many cartridge manufacturers around the world. I am sure many of them produce an excellent product, perhaps even with a reasonable performance to price ratio. Some lovingly screw their creations together by hand, some pump them out in an automated fashion. I imagine many make a consistent product. One manufacturer trusts engineering, measurement, thorough process and knowledge born of a nine decade history. One manufacturer consistently produces cartridges with the same sonic signature, year after year. One manufacturer has a factory floor full of exquisitely crafted machinery and test equipment. One manufacturer achieves a remarkable performance to price ratio with their product. One manufacturer embraces the breadth of the science underpinning their cartridges. One manufacturer truly understands their product and what they are doing. About Speakerbits You may collect your item from our office, located in Port Melbourne, Australia during business hours.
