Ortofon Kontrapunkt C From the estate of my fathers music loving friend who is entering assisted living and will not have the room for his setup. All his equipment is well cared for in a nonsmoking environment. With slightly under 400 hours (according to his VPI SDS) of use before switching to his Benz Gullwing (also for sale). Run on his VPI Classic setup. I have also put ~ 10 hours of listening to check out on my TNT 5-ET 2.5 rig. Plays perfect. With box, styrofoam protection and outer carton. New $1650.00 $700.00 Ortofon Kontrapunkt C Kontrapunkt c is a true high end reference cartridge, conveying music with supreme precision, impact and dynamics. Its stereo imaging capabilities illuminate the furthest corners of the soundstage in all three dimensions. The Kontrapunkt c has a conical aluminum cantilever fitted with a Nude FG 80 diamond stylus. Coils are wound from 99.9999% pure silver. A neodymium magnet and an output of 470 mV ensure an extremely high signal-to-noise ratio with any MC Preamplifire. Kontrapunkt c incorporates Ortofon’s unique FSE (Field Stabilising Element) to achieve optimal frequency response linearity by stabilizing the magnetic field around the armature-especially during complex crescendo passages- and to ensure consistently high channel separation across the frequency band. A high resolution audio system is required to fully explore the information retrieval potential of this cartridge.
