Benefits of high-end materials and advancements in technology

The housing of the Verismo cartridge is made in Titanium with the Selective Laser Melting (SLM) technique pioneered by Ortofon. 

The SLM technology and high precision process eschews traditional techniques: considered an engineering breakthrough, the SLM process welds fine particles of Titanium together, layer-by layer, to construct a single piece body devoid of extraneous material. This technique allows for precise control of the density of the body material, allowing for extremely high internal damping. The final result provides freedom over vibrations within the cartridge body material.


Higher efficiency magnet system

The magnet system is based on an extremely strong, compact neodymium magnet, which makes the generator system both compact and lighter through its minimal dimensions.

Much like its predecessors, the MC A95 and the MC Windfeld Ti, the MC Verismo employs the special designed armature comprised of a metal alloy which is less magnetic than normal iron. This provides noteworthy benefit to the dynamic capabilities of the cartridge. The reason for this is that our high-tech armature has almost no influence on the magnetic field during movement. Moreover, it allows to achieve extreme precision in each coil turn in all layers. This enables the MC Verismo to obtain a higher degree of channel separation, while simultaneously offering lower distortion and better channel balance.

Using Oroton’s Aucurum coils of gold-plated, 6NX oxygen free copper allows for zero-loss transmission of the diamond’s movements via its Diamond cantilever. This combination makes use of low moving mass and an extremely high degree of rigidity.


Enhenced damping capabilities

Ortofon’s Field Stabilizing Element (FSE), a small cylinder of conductive material strategically placed inside the magnet system, guarantees that the magnetic field remains stable regardless of the movement of the armature. FSE improves the channel separation, while at the same time minimizing dynamic distortion and intermodulation.
One of the important components is Ortofon’s patented Wide Range Damping system (WRD), in which a small, heavy platinum disc is sandwiched between two rubber absorbers, both with different properties. This ensures not only an exceptional tracking performance, but also creates a perfect damping through the entire frequency range. Because of this, distortion and resonance are virtually eliminated.
To attain an optimal interaction between compliance and damping, a newly developed rubber compound for the suspension system has been used. The new rubber compound formula based on the Multi Wall Carbon Nano Tubes (MWCNT) highly efficient nano filler. The MWCNT-based compound offers desirable mechanical properties, which ensure better damping and improve the overall performance of the cartridge.
