Ortofon Cadenza Black Moving Coil Cartridge

The Ortofon Cadenza Black Moving Coil Cartridge is available for demonstration in our Hull store by request.

The Ortofon Cadenza Black is the flagship of the popular Cadenza range of Moving Coil cartridges. It employs a pristine-cut Nude Shibata stylus with a boron cantilever. The effective mass of the stylus/cantilever system is extremely low due to the use of a very thin boron rod; this material is extremely stiff and even more lightweight than aluminium, making it a real premium component choice.

The Ortofon Cadenza Black also uses the WRD (Wide Range Damping-system), controlling the high and low frequency damping separately. The coil wire is the famous Ortofon Aucurum wire, which is a gold plated version of the popular 6NX copper wire.

The Ortofon Cadenza Black is optimized for an amazing tonal neutrality, dynamics and purity of sound. It is high performing on areas like detail, consistency and sound staging.
