The Ortofon Cadenza Mono MC phono cartridge is made with a nude fine line stylus and a cylindrical aluminum cantilever. For easy use the pins are connected so you get the same signal from both pairs of connecting pins. Sharing internal build with the Cadenza Red and with optimized adjustments for mono playback the sound is relaxed, homogeneous and warm. Dig out your old records as well as new micro groove mono records and hear them they way they were meant to sound with the Cadenza Mono.
Ortofon's Cadenza Series replaces the award-winning Kontrapunkt Series. This ambitious project utilizes brand-new technology such as an improved winding procedure for the armature, extruded aluminum for the bodies, and special magnets. These moving coil cartridges offer much better detail retrieval and greater dynamics. The five-cartridge line includes a mono version for those of you with large mono collections. The cantilever/stylus configuration as well as the wiring used determines the prices. Call us to discuss this incredible cartridge line.
