Description

Cadenza is Ortofon's latest range. It builds on the famous 'Kontrapunkt' range. This innovative series deserves the best technology available. Ortofon expands this range with a mono model. It has 6NX gold-plated silver coil wires and neodymium magnets. The Nude Fine Line stylus is mounted onto a cylindrical alloy cantilever. To ward off resonance and vibration, its body is made of an aluminium and stainless steel alloy. It provides perfect stiffness and enables the weight to remain acceptable. Threaded inserts replace the unattractive nuts, also making the assembly process easier and allowing optimal mounting to the headshell. Tests with a load at 250 Ohms and tracking force at 2.5g, as recommended by Ortofon, have yielded excellent results.

The Cadenza Mono is very similar to the Red but optimised for playing monophonic records, originally produced between 1948 and 1968 and some reissues appearing in the '70s up to today. The listening experience is extremely vibrant. With most recordings, we were surprised by the differences compared to our benchmark stereo cartridge.  The quality is far superior to what we were used to in terms of soundstaging and dynamics. The voices seem to be more defined, but they are also more solid and realistic, in short, the tonal balance is truer and more natural…

If you have a mono LP collection and a turntable with a tonearm that can be fitted with the 10.7 g of this Cadenza Mono, it is certainly made with you in mind as it is one of the most developed and highest performing products currently available. Back to mono!
