Historical product

MC Jubilee

Ortofon MC Jubilee High-End cartridge was launched in 1998 to celebrate Ortofon’s 80th Anniversary.

The Ortofon MC Jubilee features a unique exterior design and an interior construction based on numerous technological advances in the service of your listening experience. The cartridge incorporates Wide Range Damping system, controlling the high-and low frequency damping separately. The effective mass has been reduced in the stylus/cantilever system by using a very thin boron rod. This material is extremely stiff and even more lightweight compared to aluminum. The velocity of sound is almost 3 times higher compared to that of aluminum.

Nude high-polished Shibata diamond stylus

Amazing sound

Combined with the Nude high-polished Shibata diamond stylus at the end of the cantilever we have developed one of the new elements responsible for the new sound 6-nines (99.9999%) pure silver is used for the coils on the armature.

Amazing tonal neutrality, dynamics, and purity of sound of the Ortofon MC Jubilee set new standards for potency, detail, consistency, and sound staging. A high performance MC transformer or MC preamplifier is required to take full advantage of these qualities. Recommended load: 10 Ohms or much higher, unless the ancillary system has bright tendencies.
