The Quintet Mono features a Nude Elliptical r/R 8/18µm stylus that is an ideal solution for playing mono microgroove vinyl records. The Quintet Mono will track perfectly through even worn and damaged records and ensure good surface noise control.

Quintet Mono uses a strapped output to deliver the same output signal from both sets of pole pins. This effectively eliminates the need for mono-specific equipment, making it possible to enjoy true mono reproduction on any stereo playback system. 

Quintet Mono is the best cartridge in the Quintet series to play monophonic records.
