Ortofon MC Jubilee Moving Coil Cartridge Up Close

This is a short article and video about my Ortofon MC Jubilee moving coil cartridge.

The Ortofon MC Jubilee is an amazingly good cartridge. My understanding is that Ortofon sold quite a few of the, despite the high price. Here in Australia, they retailed for around $2700 AUD. That didn’t deter me and I found a new one selling for quite a bit less than that.

Ortofon views this cartridge as a modern classic and after owning one for many years, I agree. They have a dedicated page about the MC Jubilee where you can read more about the features and benefits of the design.

The Jubilee features a thin boron cantilever, silver windings, low impedance and a nude Shibata diamond – a seriously potent combination of features that help this cartridge sound as great as it does.

This wonderful cartridge is now for sale – visit this article for more!

UPDATE – SOLD!

Later, I started Liquid Audio, a specialist electronics repairer known for detail-focused service, repair and restoration of hi-fi electronics & turntables. Keeping classic hi-fi gear alive and well is what we do. Our mission: to deliver TLC for classic Japanese, American and European hi-fi stereo equipment. In my spare time, I ride motorcycles, travel, listen to music and research interesting topics.
