Product Information

Conveying Music with Supreme Precision, Impact, and Dynamics

The Cadenza Bronze model uses a Replicant 100 stylus and a conical aluminum cantilever, and the coil wire is the famous Ortofon Aucurum wire, which is a gold-plated 6NX copper wire. A specialized Field Stabilizing Element/FSE is used for optimal linearity especially during complex crescendo passages. The Cadenza Bronze stereo imaging capabilities illuminate the farthest corners of the soundstage in all three dimensions.

The people at Ortofon are constantly looking for new technology to be used in their products and push the performance of existing technology. Thus they assure the highest level of performance and quality. The Kontrapunkt models and MC Jubilee became market standards and are among their most popular cartridges. Nevertheless, Ortofon decided to develope a new cartridge series that is even more ambitious.

By carefully implementing cobalt-iron pole pieces, new and improved winding process on the armature, and using extruded aluminum housing in the models as well as other changes, Ortofon has been able to reveal new possibilities in performing the analogue information. It was also decided to make a more complete range of cartridges, which meant an introduction of a moving coil Cadenza Mono model to support customers who have an extended interest in micro groove mono records.
