Digitrac 300 SE cartridge
Obsolete, see our Line of P-mount cartridges here
This is a genuine Digitrac 300 SE cartridge . Made by Ortofon Denmark. Comes in the original "book" style case with paperwork, hardware and 1/2" (standard) mount adapter. Digitrac was a line put out by Ortofon for a short while. The SE stylus mounted on this cartridge is widely considered to be equal to the Ortofon sty-30.
This cartridge has a NUDE SUPER Elliptical needle which is top of the line. Nude because it is a single solid piece of natural diamond. Not a glued on man-made diamond. SUPER because it is cut to fit the groove of the record better than both entry-level conical styli and elliptical needles. As we understand it the term "SUPER ELLIPTICAL" is simply Digitracs' name given to their version of other premium cuts like Shibata, Hyper-elliptical, Stereohedron and so on. That being the case, this cartridge is a great bargain for "hi-end" playback.
