The Xpression cartridge bridges the gap between SPU-type cartridges and High-End cartridges like the MC A90 and the MC Windfeld, which are designed for headshell mounting. The result is a high-performance moving coil cartridge with the convenience of a standard headshell connector. This method of connection provides a simple and elegant method of directly connecting the generator and tonearm via the Xpression’s one-piece body.

The state of the art Ortofon Xpression cartridge represents the perfect combination of three distinct characteristics pioneered by Ortofon:
  • Use of the cutting edge SLM materials, a technology pioneered on the MC A90 and SPU 90th Anniversary models.
  • Modification of the all-new generator system introduced with the MC A90 and the MC Windfeld models.
  • Ortofon's design tradition.

Since the cartridge length is identical to that of an SPU, the Xpression can easily be fitted onto tonearms without additional concern for proper alignment. The cartridge height is likewise identical to the SPU height, which makes further VTA adjustments unnecessary.

The length of the cartridge ensures a proper match with SME-mount type tonearms (e.g. SME, Grace, Fidelity Research, SAEC and Micro Seiki brands), while the mass and compliance properties of the Xpression ensure that a proper match will be achieved with any SPU-compatible arm. The Xpression can ideally be combined with the Ortofon TA-110 tonearm.
