SKU: OR-VERTO
Ortofon is pleased to introduce the Verto – a moving coil transformer reserved for only the most discerning audiophiles and music lovers. The Verto, not unlike its predecessors, takes an unrelenting approach to audio reproduction by combining the finest components available along with world class engineering, for unparalleled sound reproduction. Starting with exceptional quality Lundahl ™ transformers, surrounded by a specialized mu-metal shielding, listeners can be assured that each detail in a complex array of notes is reproduced with utter purity, with freedom from internal and external sources of interference. These two items combined make Verto one of the quietest, most revealing transformers ever offered to the audiophile market. Featuring dual mono design, the Verto provides discrete circuitry for each channel, resulting in the elimination of crosstalk and possible distortions. This results in cleaner, clearer reproduction with substantially increased stereo imaging. Regardless of the composition being played, the Verto’s expansive stereo separation provides lifelike realism, and accurate tonal balance devoid of coloration. To further minimize signal degradation and maximize signal flow, the Verto has been engineered using high quality industrial grade PCB. Additionally, gold plated RCA jacks with Teflon insulation provide optimal conductivity for use with high quality interconnects. Internally, the unit is assembled with an absolute bare minimum of internal wiring, preserving absolute signal integrity. The Ortofon Verto maintains compatibility with most Moving Coil cartridges, with internal jumbers offering two gain/impedance options. This affords audiophiles with broad flexibility while still maintaining a clean aesthetic.

    The step-up transformer worked exactly as Patrick at NeedleDoctor described. It gave a much needed boost to my low output MC cart (which I then played through my MM input on my preamp). Excellent product. Did not alter the sound in any way. Just made my Turntable play at the same level (volume wise) as my other components.

    I paired the Ortofon Verto with their Kontrapunkt C and found it to be a match made in heaven. The Verto step up adds more depth and detail particularly at the high end and rounds out the rough edges. While it's not necessary, it brings out the best of a premium cartridge.
