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!
