Ortofon Cadenza Blue MC Phono Cartridge

Positioned in the middle of Ortofon's Cadenza line, the Cadenza Blue boasts a Nude FG 70 stylus mounted to an ultra-thin and very rigid ruby cantilever. Ortofon tightened up the coil winding of the armature, improving channel balance and signal flow, giving the Cadenza Blue has a shockingly wide and deep soundstage, rendered with amazing clarity and definition.

"The Cadenza Blue is a fantastic experience, think deep soundstaging, wonderfully wide timbral resolution and beautifully sonorous treble; the sound stage stretches wide, instruments and singers have vivid life. The Blue was challengingly fast and deeply detailed, drums had deliciously resonant impact as they roll across the soundstage."

Blessed with a smooth, fluid treble, lightning-quick transient response, and eye-opening resolution, the Cadenza Blue is guaranteed to reveal new dimensions of every LP in your collection. The Blue possesses tremendous impact throughout the frequency range and effortlessly untangles complex musical passages. Simply put, phono cartridges don't get much better than the Ortofon Cadenza Blue.
