Ortofon MC Rondo Red
The Rondo Red is a very homogeneous all round cartridge meaning that sound image will tend to less dynamic strength and smoother reproduction-working perfect with all sorts of not very complex music.
The Rondo Red has a very fine polished elliptical diamond is mounted on a cylindrical aluminum cantilever.
The cartridge is clearly out of the same family of sound as Bronze and Blue – all of them taking benefit from the wooden housings.
Recommended load around 100 Ohm or even higher if added “air“ might be preferred.
