What can I say this is my original Jubilee that has spend the last couple of years touring SNA homes and then sent to Dmitri in Vladivostok for a complete re build, his work is sublime and is thought of as better and higher quality than may original cartridge makers, maybe its because he takes months to do it.  It truly sounds superb on Rega p9 also for sale. Jubilee carts are not made anymore as they were a celebration cart, the cart falls somewhere just above the Cadenza black or bronze and has a bit of each personality.



The Ortofon MC Jubilee features a unique exterior design and an interior construction based on numerous technological advances. The cartridge incorporates Wide Range Damping system controlling the high-and low frequency damping separately.


The effective mass has been reduced in the stylus/cantilever system by using a very thin boron rod. This material is extremely stiff and even more lightweight compared to aluminum. Besides is the velocity of sound almost 3 times higher compared to that of aluminum.


Combined with the Nude high-polished Shibata diamond stylus at the end of the cantilever we have developed one of the new elements responsible for the new sound 6-nines (99.9999%) pure silver is used for the coils on the armature.


Amazing tonal neutrality, dynamics and purity of sound of the Ortofon MC Jubilee set new standards for potency, detail, consistency and sound staging.

A high performance MC transformer or MC preamplifier is required to take full advantage of these qualities. Recommended load: 10 Ohms or much higher, unless the ancillary system has bright tendencies.
