For sale - MC Verismo Cartridge w/approx. 350 hour of use.  The buyer is moving to an Etsuro-Urushi Bordeaux cartridge.   Meticulously used and lovingly cared for.  

From the Ortofon website
The Ortofon Exclusives Series of highest performing Moving Coil cartridges has now been expanded to include a new premier model – the MC Verismo.

The MC Verismo has been developed based on our extensive knowledge of vibration properties, different shapes and materials characteristics, as well as competences in magnetism, mechanical design and technologies. The MC Verismo will undoubtedly provide sound which simply has to be experienced.

Ortofon Replicant 100


One of the preconditions for linear reproduction with a wide frequency range and optimal tracking performance is a diamond - the shape of which is as close as possible to the original cutting stylus.

As in all Exclusives series cartridges, the MC Verismo makes use of the Ortofon's Replicant 100 diamond. This Line Contact type stylus distinguishes itself by having a narrow and long contact surface, which is as close as possible to the original cutting stylus. This ensures the most accurate reproduction, lowest distortion, and extended frequency range.


The addition of a solid Diamond cantilever provides the best possible interface between the stylus and armature, owing to its hardness and crystal structure. The improvements found in the use of a Diamond cantilever have redefined the boundaries of analog reproduction, presenting greater inner detail, subtlety, and depth like never before.

From HiFi News....

“... it (the MC Verismo - red.) is nothing short of sensational.

... The MC Verismo, too, is the coolest looking cartridge I’ve seen.

... Bless ’em: there was no doubt from the moment the stylus settled into the groove that I was in the presence of something not just special but memorable.

... Thus the MC Verismo ticked another box, if convincing portrayal is the ultimate objective: there was absolutely no element which sounded inconsistent with the rest of the sonic picture. Textures were so believable that I am sure seasoned musicians would be able to identify the makers of the instruments being played.

... the MC Verismo was responsible for one of the once-a-year-if-you’re-lucky moments ...“
