Ortofon Cadenza Red

  • £999.00
  • Product Code: ORTCRE


The Cadenza Red is using a nude fine line stylus with a cyclindrical 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. 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.
