Ortofon Cadenza Red Moving Coil Cartridge

Ultimate Value for Money From A Fuller Sound Moving Coil

The introductory cartridge to the coveted Cadenza series of high-end moving coil pick-up cartridges is the Cadenza Red. This stylish, high-quality cartridge boasts a nude fine line stylus with a cylindrical aluminium cantilever. The stylus tip radius is r/R 8/40µm. The coils are made from 6NX (99.9999%) pure silver wire. An improved winding process on the armature allows a better channel balance for good stereo imaging.

The sound picture of the Cadenza Red is more relaxed, homogeneous and moderately dynamic in the perspective compared to the Cadenza Blue. It also has a great space and depth in the stereo image.
