Ortofon – MC A95 Moving Coil Cartridge
The Ortofon MC A95 not only celebrates the past 95 years of Ortofon, it makes history by significantly raising the standards by which sound reproduction is measured, making it a celebration of sound itself. The A95 represents a remarkable design feat. Check out the reviews for more info about the sound.
The Ortofon MC A95 has gone to the next level by reducing unwanted vibrations and increasing the dynamic capability of the cartridge. Our extensive knowledge of vibration properties, characteristics in different shapes and materials, competences in magnetism, mechanical design and new technologies has been applied for optimization of the MC A95.
Those who choose to adopt the MC A95 will experience the lifelike, open sound, with exceedingly clear midrange for a presentation that is unparalleled. The MC A95 remains extremely musical while paying close attention to micro dynamic details, with its delicate, but also analytical nature.
Lovers of music will take note of a truly organic and encapsulating experience which transcends the boundaries of recording and undeniably blurs the distinction between what is live and what is recorded.

“…I directly compared the A90 with the A95, and while the A90 remains among the fastest, most neutral cartridges I’ve ever heard, the A95 produced wider dynamics—particularly in the bottom octaves—and a generally richer, more fully fleshed out sound. If the A90 literally brought the Windfeld out of its protective shell, the A95 is the A90 on testosterone…
The Ortofon MC A95 improves on the MC A90’s well-deserved reputation for being one of the world’s best-sounding phono cartridges.”

Noel Keywood hails Ortofon’s new A95 state-of-the-art Moving Coil cartridge as one of the best he has ever heard:
“…Dry, fast, extremely detailed and almost concussive, the A95 is a highly tuned mechanical statement. It is not lush, warm or cuddly, but rather a machine of insight and deep analysis…
…Massively capable, the A95 is a cartridge that makes the LP sound better all-round than I have ever heard it. Almost frightening!”

“…Five years of experience designing the most advanced cartridges has allowed Ortofon to combine all the technical advancements and knowledge gained from producing the A90 and MC Anna into what appears to be an ideal mix of the two cartridges…
…With the A90, the sound is well controlled but somewhat overdamped in the bass with a bit less decay on the electronically processed instruments and voice. With the A95 playing the same track, the bass drum feels like the stick is twice as large (if not more that that) resulting in a much more substantially authoritative note that decays longer. Speaking of decay, every instrument’s engineering is now reproduced in such a way that it is heard clearly—even the cymbals’ processed decay, hidden from the A90, is now audible…
…the A95 has shown itself to be one of Ortofon’s best efforts…
…the A95 seems to stay in the neutral lane with the perceived addition of greater weight and dynamic expressiveness when compared with the A90…”
