Ortofon is an audio brand that manufactures high-quality analog cartridges and has been in business for over 100 years. Products that handle minute parts require a great deal of technology, and years of development and manufacturing know-how is still being accumulated.
Among these technologies, we have established a technology that changes the sound quality by using materials such as gold and silver in the acoustic circuit. This technology is utilized in high-quality analog cartridges, high-quality audio cables, etc. And this time, for the first time in the world, we succeeded in using a pure silver wire coil in a balanced armature driver.
The e-Q8's casing was carved from an aluminum bar by Japanese metalworking craftsmen to create a lightweight, sturdy, hollow case. The mirror-like body has a beautiful diamond-polished finish. The e-Q8's white cable is tightly woven with special fibers to protect the internal cable conductors and prevent cable kinks. Individual serial numbers are laser printed on the brackets that secure the left and right channel cables together. The connection plug uses an L-shape to increase the bending durability of the plug part.
