“This newly released turntable comes, unlike most other The Classic offsprings, in an elegant piano black chassis. Together with the silver aluminium sub-chassis, this results in stunning aesthetics. The supplied cartridge is a limited edition Concorde and marks the celebration of Ortofon‘s 100 years of existance.”
It is based on a Concorde cartridge, which was mostly used as a DJ system, but has its origins in HiFi. The Concord Century uses pure silver coils for best possible conductivity. As a result, the sound will be more open and more precise.
The Ortofon Century turntable comes fully equipped with a built in electronic speed con- trol. Change from 33.3 to 45 rounds per minute with the ease of pushing a single button. Even if you have a collection of 78 RPM shellack re- cords, we have got you covered. By manually placing the drive belt on the upper ring of the pulley and selecting the respective speed on the sub-chassis.
100 Years Ortofon
Our long-time partners and friends of Ortofon have the incredible jubilee of 100 years. Not many companies can say that they have been the industry leader in their field and managed to exist for such a long time. We are very happy to be able to celebrate their existance of one full century together. We are thrilled to release the Ortofon Century turntable in conjunction with Ortofon.
Built on The Classic SB it has a few tweaks which result in even better performance. We took the already incredible Classic SB and exchanged the sub-platter for a more sophisticated alumi- nium one.
