The Quintet Black is the best example of Quintet’s overall excellence.
The Quintet Black is graced with a Nude Shibata diamond, considered one of the best stylus profiles available, mounted on a high-performance Boron cantilever. The Shibata’s slim, highly polished profile allows an exceedingly wide contact area to the walls of the groove and ensures detailed and pure reproduction thoughout the spectrum, including even the most high frequency groove information. Unfettered by musical genre, the Quintet Black is the closest to Ortofon’s true accuracy of sound in the Quintet series.
