Ortofon is the first name in hi-fi cartridges. Founded in 1918 with the aim of exploring the possibilities of optical hi-fidelity recording, they developed one of the first synchronised sound film systems in the world. After a series of innovations and advancements in technology, the company began to diversify into the burgeoning gramophone industry in the 1940s.
