Ortofon MC Cadenza Moving Coil Cartridge in Red Overview

Featuring a Nude Fine Line stylus with a cylindrical aluminum cantilever, the Ortofon MC Cadenza Moving Coil Cartridge brings impressive performance to the world of record player needles. The finely crafted stylus has a tip radius of r/R 8/40 micrometers, which produces a more graceful and precise playback when the record needle hits the vinyl. With high-quality coils made of 6NX (99.9999%) pure silver, the MC Cadenza phono cartridge brings a clean and sophisticated approach to the way your turntable stylus reads audio. An improved winding process on the armature allows for a better channel balance, and the Cadenza red delivers a relaxed, homogeneous and moderately dynamic sound picture along with depth of stereo image. Housed in a red/black stainless steel aluminum body, the MC Cadenza Red makes for an attractive and impactful addition to the world of phonograph needles.
