Ortofon Cadenza Blue Moving Coil Cartridge

Fantastic Airy Soundstaging From Moving Coil

The Ortofon Cadenza Blue employs a Nude FG 70 stylus with a very thin ruby cantilever. The improved winding process of the armature ensures better channel balance than any model that came before it. The styling is the same as adorned by it’s kin, and the build-quality reflects Ortofon’s 100% commitment to a reputable product, and happy customers.

The soundstage of the Cadenza Blue is wide, open and grandiose as soon as you take it out of the box. Micro dynamics and ambience will be evident when listening to complex compositions creating a full and involving performance. The Blue also reaches a very high degree of definition in the perspective, which is very present. It is true to the music with a tremendous clarity.
