The Concorde Century
In 2018, Ortofon reached the milestone of 100 years as a leading company in the worlds of audio and micro-engineering. Having celebrated many of its previous  anniversaries by launching innovative products, naturally, the approaching centennial year called for some grand designs and the relaunch of the cartridge that is emblematic of Ortofon’s pioneering approach to design – the Concorde. With a tip of the hat to the Concorde’s origins, Ortofon now releases in a limited edition of 1,000 a Hi-Fi Concorde version The Concorde Century. “We’ve been asked many times about bringing back a hi-fi Concorde,” Ortofon Chief Acoustic Leif Johannsen recalls. “But we didn’t want to mix the hi-fi and DJ markets. But this limited edition is a reasonably priced model that is a fairly high-end 2M. You could compare it to the performance of the 2M Bronze. It’s chrome all over. Very flashy looking!” The Concorde Century uses a silver-plated copper wire and a Nude Fine Line diamond stylus, which slim profile will track even the highest frequency information. Additionally, its larger footprint ensures reduced distortion and record wear. The Concorde Century has a full, relaxed and homogenous sound with space, depth and detail – a very good choice for any kind of music.
