In ViNyL we trust

Skilled DJs demand specialized tools that can help them push their creativity to the edge – consistently testing the boundaries in the realm of performance.

Understanding this and reflecting Ortofon's extensive experience in industrial design and technological know-how, Ortofon present the new VNL cartridge – a model tailored uniquely to the unrelenting demands of modern turntablists and portablists.

The new VNL features and improvements

  • Extra resistance to hardcore scratching and back spinning
  • High tracking performance for both DVS usage and real vinyl
  • Optimal balance of output and of sound quality

Technological improvements have been applied for the benefits of all users:
- Ultrasonic welding of the components ensures high rigidity and freedom from resonances.
- Robotic assembly of stylus assembly offers high precision and uniformity of industrial production.

3 different feels to fine-tune your performance

To match the multiple applications of modern DJs the VNL Introduction package includes 3 different styli with suspension types of varying feel and rigidity:

VNL I compliance, dynamic lateral 16 μm/m N - Flexible
VNL II compliance, dynamic lateral 15 μm/m N - Rigid
VNL III compliance, dynamic lateral 14 μm/m N - Firm

DJs can easily identify which stylus type best suits their individual DJ style and enables their absolute best performance capability!
