Ortofon 100 year Anniversary book - collector's item
There are very few companies which survive long enough to celebrate their 100th birthday, but Ortofon is one. With the publication of this special book, they share their pride in Ortofon with the public; in particular, with the many loyal customers all over the world. Ortofon have chosen to let Ortofon people help to tell this story, because they are proud of the company's many achievements throughout its long history.
This book reveals the remarkable history of a company that for 100 years has always been in the business of acoustics. Indeed, for that timespan, Denmark itself, has been recognised as the land of acoustics, with many companies designing innovative products. The country retains that reputation today.
Ortofon has played a significant role in creating a rich heritage for Danish acoustics. We believe that enviable legacy is best protected and continued by the development of exciting new products and keeping Ortofon viable for the future. As you will discover in the book, the list of Ortofon's famous and groundbreaking products is a long one.
Music historian Kevin Howlett has written this history of 100 years of Ortofon based on a firm foundation of exhaustive research in various archives and in-depth interviews with past and present employees from the 1970s until now. We are indebted to all the many friends and colleagues who gave so generously of their time to contribute to this book.
