Product Description

The Ortofon Cadenza Red is a replacement for the Kontrapunkt A and offers measurably better performance with a taste of high end analogue performance for a reasonable price. Features include nude fine line stylus with a aluminium cantilever. In contrast to lower Ortofon moving coil cartridges, the Cadenza Red offers better channel balance and stunning dynamics.

With a wide, open soundstage, and a high level of detail, it's a musical and enjoyable cartridge which is smoother and more musical than most 'lesser' moving coil cartridges.

Press Reviews

  • "The Cadenza Red has something approaching the outstanding qualities of Ortofon's pricer Cadenza Blue. It gives a convincing impression of correct balance and proportion, and premises long term listening satisfaction." (Hi-Fi News Magazine Yearbook 2012)

  • "Bass was accurate, extended and open-sounding, helping the cartridge's ability to offer realistic studio perspectives. It never sounded forced or flurried, but in its unstressed manner made you want to carry on listening" (Hi Fi News Magazine, July 2012)

  • "...sailed through with a with a naturalness that came from really secure tracking..." (Hi Fi News Magazine, July 2012)
