Product Description

Ortofon Cadenza Mono (price for exchange with specific old Ortofon models) is a perfect choice for playing a collection of mono records, to enjoy the best possible mono sound and is an ideal second cartridge. If you have the option on your turntable for a second tonearm, use the Cadenza Mono as a second option for mono records - or alternatively, use it on a second turntable dedicated to mono records. Until you try a dedicated mono cartridge on mono recordings - you don't know what you're missing! 

The Cadenza Mono features a nude fine line stylus and a cylindrical aluminium cantilever for excellent frequency reproduction. For ease of use, the pins are connected so you get the same signal from both pairs of connecting pins. The stylus radius is r/R 8/40 µm. 

Sharing features from the Ortofon Cadenza Red and with optimized adjustments for mono playback the sound is relaxed, homogeneous and moderate. Find your old records as well as new micro groove mono records and experience the Cadenza Mono.

Press Reviews

  • 'Super stylish and with bags of sonic appeal, the KEF ‘eggs’ still have plenty to offer...true style speaker system, solid, organised sound nicely balanced authority in dialogue' (What Hi-Fi magazine review)

    'It's a solid, rounded sound, too. Listening to the excellent DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray release of Predator, sounds are immediate and full, with an even tonal balance that's easy on the ear' (What Hi-Fi magazine review)

    'Dialogue is clear and authoritative – even for Arnie – and sure enough, this system does a fine job of filling a room and sending sound in equal measures wherever you're sat' (What Hi-Fi magazine review)

    'It might be organised and well defined, but it's also a little short of scale, lacking the dynamics of more capable and, granted, more substantial systems around at this price' (What Hi-Fi magazine review)
