Pick it S2 C
Concorde at its roots
Ortofon‘s Concorde series was highly acclaimed especially at professional DJ‘s. An often overlooked detail is, that it had its roots as a HiFi cartridge. That is exactly where we want to position it again. This special collaboration between Pro-Ject and Orftofon revealed this high value phono cartridge – Pick it S2 C!

real insider tip for a high-value MM system
• The Pick it S2 C dishes out even more than stated in the brochure: Instead of 6 millivolts, the AUDIO lab measured more than 7. That should get even insensitive phono stages up to speed.
• The presented dynamics should surprise even the snobbiest among high-enders.
• The new Concorde offshoot displays impressive high-fidelity virtues.[pdf]
