Ortofon was established in 1918 by the two Danish engineers, Axel Petersen and Arnold Poulsen. Now Ortofon is a micro-mechanical powerhouse, which develops and manufactures the world acclaimed phono cartridges for vinyl records.

Ortofon phone cartridges concentrate not only on providing the best sound, but more importantly the faithful and correct representation of the recorded sound.


Ortofon are one of the few remaining hi-fi manufacturers who focus 100% of their resources on phono pick-up cartridges. This focus has allowed them to focus R&D funds on vinyl playback like no other manufacturer in the world. All Ortofon cartridges are made by hand and with specialised, custom-engineered machinery to exacting standards. The result is a product you can trust, which also sounds amazing.
