ORTOFON – Denmark – Cartridges & Stylii

bill_velkomst2Ortofon was founded in 1918 by two Danish engineers, Axel Petersen and Arnold Poulsen. These two pioneers had one very clear objective in mind – to put sound onto film, and with this, they established the Electrical Fonofilms Company A/S, which later on was renamed Ortofon A/S. A few years later, in the Palace Theatre, Copenhagen, they were able to present the first fully-synchronized sound films and in so doing, created a world sensation.

Ortofon was also the first company to produce an outdoor sound film recording. The founders took out several patents and issued licences to film companies the world over for their “System Petersen og Poulsen”, which is even to this day the basis for film with optical sound.

Until the second world war, Ortofon’s growth was based entirely on the sound film. However, during the war and immediately afterwards, production was re-organized to include record cutting and reproducing equipment. The first Moving Coil cutterhead was produced as early as 1945, and the Moving Coil principle was then further developed to enable production of, first, mono cartridges and, later, also stereo cartridges.

During this busy period of growth, equipment was also being developed for broadcasting networks and recording studios. It was not until later that the Company decided to specialize solely in the development and production of cartridges. Unique experience at both ends of the recording sequence results in unsurpassed performence from every Ortofon cartridge.

Goldnote Bellagio Ref

Goldnote Turntables, formerly known as Bluenote, are manufactured in Florence Italy of the very finest materials including machine worked aluminium, brass,bronze, stainless steel, all to improve sonic performances. Their design results in the maximum dampening of vibration and rumble. When Goldnote tonearms and cartridges are used, the result is a perfectly matched system.

Tonearm & Cartridge Alignment

Thorens Axia 003CompMKOM is unique in providing this service in the Greater Toronto area. As a dealer committed to the best possible analog performance at almost any budget level, we have the tools and the knowledge to apply them for your benefit and long term listening enjoyment.
Whether you purchase a phono cartridge, tonearm, turntable, or some combination of the above and perhaps other components, MKOM provides its exclusive setup and alignment service free of charge as part of providing real value for your investment. For turntable systems not purchased from us, we offer the same service at the reasonable cost of $125.00 within the GTA. Additional charge of $25.00 may be applicable for areas outside of the GTA. The $125.00 fee may be applied toward future analog purchases including turntables, tonearms, and cartridges, and such purchases include the setup and alignment service. Thus it’s a win-win every customer should take advantage of.

What the service includes
Setting overhang and offset angle
Setting tracking force
Adjustment of anti-skating
Measurement of phase error and crosstalk for different azimuth settings
Wow and flutter speed accuracy
Frequency response
Tonearm/cartridge resonances
Harmonic distortion
Tonearm resonances

What differences should you expect
Better imaging
Deeper, wider soundstage
Lower noise and distortion
Clearer high frequencies
More tuneful, better defined bass
Richer tone and harmonics
Reduced record wear
Longer stylus life


fozgometerTo obtain high performance from a modern phonograph system, the tonearm and pickup cartridge must be properly adjusted to within a few thousands of an inch. There are several alignment gauges available to adjust overhang and offset. To adjust cartridge azimuth (Axial Tilt), it has been necessary to use lab quality equipment and a test record. Azimuth may be adjusted using an oscilloscope, AC voltmeter, or computer program. These methods can be expensive and time consuming.

The FOZGOMETER represents a breakthrough for adjusting phono system azimuth. The FOZGOMETER incorporates a “Log Ratio Detector” developed for surround processor steering logic circuits to measure channel separation over a wide range of signal levels down to -70 dB. The readings are virtually independent of overall signal levels, and can be made with a wide range of input signals without effecting accuracy. It is a small portable battery powered unit that is used in conjunction with a test record. It measures channel separation, channel balance, and signal direction quickly and accurately. Readings are taken without touching the meter, leaving your hands free to work with the tonearm. The meter reads channel separation in both directions, and channel balance. The LED’s indicate Left, Center, and Right signal (test tone) positions.
