Ortofon S-15MT

Stereo Phono Cartridge

Ortofon S-15MT


The Ortofon S-15MT is identical to the S-15T, but is factory mounted in a shell that fits all Ortofon and SME tonearms.

The user need have no qualms about the accuracy of his mounting; the S-15MT is precision aligned by Ortofon in a shell to track and reproduce perfectly.

The four stereo connections are made at the factory; instead of the usual wires, the cartridge has silver-plated coil spring connections from the cartridge to the terminals that connect into the tonearm.

The use of coil springs guards against any undesirable resonance, and also insures perfect contact.


Frequency response: 15 to 40,000Hz

Impedance: 15k ohms

Stylus pressure: 1 to 2g

Channel separation: 20 to 30dB
