The Ortofon Moving Coil Exchange (Trade-In) Program is designed to help existing Ortofon customers update or renew their Hi-Fi system in a much more cost-effective way.

Through the program, Ortofon offer a trade-in value for the current range of moving coil cartridges, as well as an extensive list of discontinued models. Through this cartridge exchange program, we are able to help customers upgrade or replace their current phono cartridge in a more economical way than usual.

How It Works

Any condition cartridge is accepted. In order to qualify for your 25% at RRP discount, the equivalent cartridge model must be purchased, as outlined in the table. If you wish to upgrade to a higher specification model, you'll get 25% off the RRP value of the current equivalent trade-in cartridge towards your upgraded model.

Why Should I Exchange?

Ortofon and Interdyn offer this service as an alternative to a ‘refurbishment’ or ‘re-tipping’ service. It is our opinion that if the internal mechanics or the diamond tip of a cartridge are modified, replaced or restored, the fundamental element of what made that cartridge unique is lost, and it will therefore never be fully restored to what you originally purchased. With our exchange scheme, you get rewarded for being an existing Ortofon customer and are able to update your system easily.

Important point: This offer is also open to non-working cartridges. So if you've had an accident and broken your cartridge, or the stylus, suspension, cantilever or any element of the cartridge is irreparably damaged, we're still happy to help. We take cartridges in all conditions back on this scheme.

Where Can I Exchange?

The Exchange Program can be accessed at all Moving Coil qualified Ortofon Dealers.
