MC Rondo Red Cartridge
The all-around cartridge
Ortofon MC Rondo Red is a very homogeneous all round cartridge
The Rondo Red has a very fine polished elliptical diamond is mounted on a cylindrical aluminum cantilever.
The cartridge is clearly out of the same family of sound as Bronze and Blue – all of them taking benefit from the wooden housings.
Recommended load around 100 Ohm or even higher if added “air“ might be preferred.
The MC Rondo Red sound image will tend to less dynamic strength and smoother reproduction-working perfect with all sorts of not very complex music.
