Ortofon MC Cadenza Mono Moving Coil Cartridge Overview

An improved winding down process ensures your record player needle is equipped with better balance and stability for pause and play.

This phonograph needle receives the same signal from both pairs of pole pins, generating a synchronous sound from your record playback. Optimized for mono playback, this MC Cadenza shares the engineering of the Cadenza Red but in a handsome natural black casing of stainless steel aluminum. Protect and upgrade your record tonearm with the elegant touch of the MC Cadenza Mono.
