        Product description

        Cadenza Blue is True to the Music with Tremendous Clarity.

        The Cadenza Blue model is using a Nude FG 70 stylus with a very thin ruby cantilever.
        The coils are made from 6NX ( 99.9999 % ) pure silver wire.
        An improved winding process on the armature allows a better channel balance.

        The soundstage of Cadenza Blue is wide open and grandiose straight out of the box. Micro dynamic and ambience will be evident when listening to complex compositions. It reaches a very high degree of definition in the perspective, which is very present.

        The sound picture of Cadenza Red is relaxed, homogeneous and moderately dynamic and have great space and depth in the stereo image.

        The Cadenza Red model is using a Nude Fine Line stylus with a cylindrical aluminium cantilever. The stylus tip radius is r/R 8/40 µm.

        The coils are made from 6NX ( 99.9999 % ) pure silver wire.

        An improved winding process on the armature allows a better channel balance.

        Ortofon's Cadenza Black MC phono cartridge is optimized for an amazing tonal neutrality, dynamics and purity of sound. Its detail, consistency and sound staging are immense. Cadenza Black utilizes a Nude Shibata stylus with a boron cantilever. The effective mass of the stylus/cantilever system is extremely low due to the use of a very thin boron rod. This material is extremely stiff and even more lightweight than aluminium. The gold plated 6NX copper Ortofon Aucurum wire minimizes distortion, while the WRD ( Wide Range Damping-system ), control the high and low frequency damping separately.

        Ortofon’s Cadenza Series utilizes brand-new technology such as an improved winding procedure for the armature, extruded aluminum for the bodies, and special magnets. These moving coil cartridges offer much better detail retrieval and greater dynamics. The cantilever/stylus configuration as well as the wiring used determines the prices.
