Reloop 20 year gold ortofon cartridge needles Musikmesse 2016 (1)

If you’ve got a limited edition turntable, it makes sense to get a limited edition gold cartridge right? Luckily Reloop has this covered, and with their good buddies at Ortofon they’ve released the 20 Year gold Concorde cart.

The uncharacteristically short PR from Reloop:

Looking at the specs, it’s an Ortofon Pro S with a gold paint job, so as the blurb says, a good all rounder. And while there’s not a shortage of gold carts from Ortofon, it might make sense to use the Reloop ones, if only from a matching set perspective.


Commenting Etiquette

Welcome to DJWORX. It’s the most engaged community around, and we have a handful of house rules to keep it that way:
  • • Be polite and constructive.
  • • Treat others as you would expect to be treated. So please disengage keyboard warrior mode before hammering in a full caps rant.
  • • Stay on topic.
  • • Consider your tone of voice. Telling someone that they’re wrong comes across better as “I don’t agree and here’s why”.
  • • No links to copyrighted or offensive material.
Life is way too short to waste time policing comments. So break the rules and you’re out. It’s just the internet, and  the DJWORX community is way more important than catering to the fragile egos of ranting trolls. I trust I have been crystal clear.
