Rich Tonal Balance, Deep Soundstages, and Superb Imaging All Become the Norm with Ortofon's Cadenza Red MC Phono Cartridge

The Ortofon Cadenza Red is a gorgeous-sounding cartridge, built to a level of sophistication and quality unique at this price. Cadenza Red offers an engaging sense of timing, great rhythmic drive and excellent dynamic range. Built for long listening sessions, Cadenza Red entices with its rich, warm tonal balance, enticingly deep soundstage and superb imaging.

Constructed to incredibly high standards, the Red receives the Cadenza series body, a sandwich of stainless steel with an aluminum main structure in the center. This high-mass design eliminates vibration and resonance, improves tracking and provides an incredibly stable platform for the generating mechanism. Ultra-pure 6N silver coils are used for maximum resolution and outstanding dynamic shading; an improved winding process improves channel balance and imaging. The Fine-Line stylus rides lower in the grooves than other designs, allowing the Cadenza Red to retrieve previously obscured information.

"The design team at Ortofon has done a splendid job voicing the Cadenza Red, and creating a cartridge that is inviting and easy to listen to, yet capable of presenting the entire palette  of shading and texture that may be captured in a recording. This cartridge is a wonderful find for those hobbyists who value an emotionally involving listening experience, where the highlights are tone, harmonic density, and a rich presentation."
