What is the S-120?

Ortofon and Serato are proud to announce the release of a revolutionary new high performance cartridge for DJs.

Ortofon introduce the new “Ortofon|Serato S-120 DJ Cartridge” with a patent pending design that will virtually “hug the grooves” of a record using a unique suspension system that the two companies have co-designed.

All vinyl DJs will benefit from the extreme tracking ability delivered by a revolutionary new cantilever suspension. With 4.0 gms of vertical tracking force, the S-120 achieves an amazing tracking ability of 120 ?m compared to the conventional 80 ?m at 315Hz. That is a 50% performance improvement on standard DJ cartridge.

The S-120 is available in Concorde and OM versions.

* The Ortofon|Serato S-120 Concorde, a heavy 18.5gm standard Concorde mount cartridge, supplied with an extra 2gm weight to take advantage of the superior tracking ability of the S-120 Stylus.

* Ortofon|Serato S-120 OM, which is provided with matching custom head-shell with graphics that allow for easy mounting.

* Shipments from the factory in Denmark will start 30th January.
