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.
Reference AV say:
“ The Ortofon Cadenza Blue is a simply incredible cartridge for the money, offering much of the performance of the Black and Bronze and a much lower price point and offering an delightful open and airy presentation. ”
