Top-mounting of the Quintet cartridges is easy and secure using the screws
supplied. The aluminuim frame has threaded mounting holes and is fitted easily
with the 5mm or 7mm screws depending on the thickness of the headshell.
The Quintet series’ right angles, straight lines, stylus visibility and ample
distance between the record surface and the cartridge’s bottom will make it easy
to mount and align the cartridge and tonearm correctly. The Quintet Series gives
excellent results with most common tonearms.Review quotes MC Quintet Bronze

"...Ortofon’s Quintet Bronze
moving coil cartridge offers a fine example of vinyl loveliness. It is supremely
smooth in sound, full bodied and deep in sound stage. Not fast or sharp, it
veers more toward a balance that suits classical music, vocals and easy Rock.
With a stylus that gets the best from inner grooves this is a moving coil that
offers a great analogue experience. I just relaxed and enjoyed it...
...Lovely and gorgeous! Everything you could wish for from LP..."
Compatibility with Rega brand TT/TA:
REGA brand cartridges’
height from stylus tip to the top cartridge mounting surface is lower than
standard. Therefore you would need spacers to ensure the correct set-up of the
Ortofon cartridge. Please read about cartridge set-up and alignment on tonearm
on our FAQ.
Adjusting the height of your Rega tonearm is easy with
Acoustic Signature's Spacer Set. It allows you to adjust the height from 0.5 mm
to 3.5 mm in precise steps of 0.5 mm - without removing the tone arm. Simply
loosen the screws, insert the AS-spacer, then lock the screws back down, and
you're tonearm is ready to play.
3.2 - 4 mm spacers should be enough for Quintet cartridge.
