Summary

A Field Stabilizing Element, FSE, is used for optimal linearity especially during complex crescendo passages. Cadenza Bronze is a true high-end reference cartridge, conveying music with supreme precision, impact and dynamics. Its stereo imaging capabilities illuminate the farthest corners of the soundstage in all three dimensions.The Bronze model is using a Replicant 100 stylus and a conical aluminium cantilever.

Reviews

Comments of Note:

This Review was a combined review of both the Cadenza Blue and the Cadenza Bronze:

"...if you want to hear what vinyl can sound like and enjoy the magic of good analogue then this is the starting point..."

"Ortofon are able to make technically near-perfect cartridges, free of blemishes and limitations..."

"...combine beauty with accuracy, a combination that has me enthralled..."

"Both cartridges are, aurally, a fantastic experience."

"They are also supremely even and svelte:the sound stage stretches wide, instruments and singers have vivid life..."

"The Blue was challengingly fast and deeply detailed..."

"The initial impact is hair trigger-fast and the decay of the drum kept dry and controlled...torrent of fine detail...with a sweetness of tone of that only good analogue can manage, I was impressed as ever by this cartridge..."

"The Blue...had striking insight and a vividly fast and detailed delivery..."

"...the Bronze offers a richer and even more musically engaging experience."

"(the Bronze)...has the same beautifully formed bass of the Blue, that is both tight and powerful, a richer lower midband that seemingly knits bass to midrange..."

"I worked through old originals from the 1960s onwards, right up to new recordings and pressings...both cartridges were a great experience."

"Both these new Cadenza cartridges are a fantastic hi-fi experience."

"Yes, they are expensive but if you have the money their sound borders on magically beautiful."
