Description of the Elektro from the official Ortofon website:
Every professional ought to try the Elektro, a techno cartridge made by a team of highly qualified technicians and experienced and capable DJs.
Despite its sleek white styling, the Elektro isn’t just another pretty face. Also featuring a reinforced rubber suspension, the Elektro is the perfect hybrid needle for the artist who both mixes and scratches.
Enhanced tracking ability and excellent sound quality combine to form a unique balance of form and functionality. With bold, round sound, the Elektro brings your music to life, whether you’re in the club or the studio.
Unaffected by extreme sound pressure and repeated vibrations, it has a high output. The musical performance is always first-rate and the tracking ability of the spherical diamond stylus is quite good.
