The readers of the German HiFi
magazine STEREOPLAY voted for the best Hi-Fi products of the year. With votes
coming in from across Germany, the MC Quintet Red won in the category MC phono
cartridges. 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. Download the MC Quintet
