The Ortofon MC Anna cartridge
The Ortofon’s MC Anna represents the highest echelon of Moving Coil
cartridges. This state of the art product, representative of numerous
Ortofon design elements and ideals, is truly exemplary of the highest
degree of performance possible in contemporary analogue playback
The story behind the MC Anna cartridge
Historically Ortofon has a long tradition of paying tribute to
persons who have been highly influential within the high-end audio
culture and in music culture and history in general. In honor of these
remarkable persons, Ortofon has introduced numerous products throughout
the years, including the historical MC Rohmann, Kontrapunkt BACH Series and MC Windfeld cartridges.
Continuing this tradition with the MC Anna, Ortofon dedicates this new flagship cartridge to the Opera Diva Anna Netrebko,
a virtuoso whose performance displays a formidable technical arsenal of
endless versatility. With the dedication of the MC Anna, Ortofon once
again emphasizes the company’s unchanging commitment and devotion to the
music and to the purest delivery of recorded sound.
Much like Anna Netrebko, Ortofon aspires to provide the ultimate
musical experience through a mixture of innovation and technical
expertise, combined with inspiration that goes beyond mere thought to
reveal true inner emotion.

"...It's a gracefulsounding transducer with the liquidity to make solo violins sing almost singfully, but with enough bite..."
"...The MC Anna handled vocal sibilants claenly, precisely and smoothly - ans was really good with female voices..."
