Description of the DJ S from the official Ortofon website:
The Ortofon DJ S is a solid-built cartridge in a new blue nylon material. It has a fine spherical stylus and a specially developed and extremely balanced cantilever.
Not only does the cartridge have excellent tracking ability, it is also nearly unbreakable and provides DJs with much needed consistency. Furthermore, it induces very low record wear, an advantage for any gigging DJ.
The DJ series has been known to many as the “jack of all trades,” with improved tracking and accurate sound reproduction. Featuring a low-wear stylus design, the DJ provides excellent groove handling, even with less weight applied.
