Ortofon Cadenza Red Moving Coil Cartridge

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

The introductory cartridge to the coveted Cadenza series of high-end moving coil pick-up cartridges is the Ortofon Cadenza Red. This stylish, high-quality cartridge boasts a nude fine line stylus with a cylindrical 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 for good stereo imaging.

The sound picture of the Ortofon 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.
