In opera, verismo (Italian for '"realism"') was a post-Romantic tradition associated with a variety of reputed Italian composers. The MC Verismo aims to portray the same sense of “realism” associated with the genre, and does so thanks to Ortofon’s advanced knowledge of vibrations, and how to control them. Every aspect of the design is aimed to allow for accurate musical reproduction, without any unwanted facets.
The Finest Technologies and Material Choices
The stylus and cantilever are connected into a premium generator system, featuring a special designed armature comprised of a metal alloy, which is less magnetic than normal iron. This means the armature has almost no influence on the magnetic field during movement. Moreover it allows for extreme precision in each coil turn across all layers. The end result is that the MC Verismo can obtain a higher degree of channel separation, while simultaneously offering lower distortion and better channel balance.
To attain an optimal interaction between compliance and damping, a newly developed rubber compound for the suspension system has been used. Based on the Multi Wall Carbon Nano Tubes (MWCNT) highly efficient nano filler, this new compound offers desirable mechanical properties, which ensure better damping and improve the overall performance of the cartridge.
