Product Description

The Ortofon Cadenza Bronze features measurably better performance and a wider soundstage than the Cadenza Red or Cadenza Blue, offering a journey of musical discovery that most cartridges at this price only dream of. It also offers a wider frequency response, allowing you enjoy a full expanse of sounds from a variety of musical genres.

The Cadenza range is a replacement for Ortofon's Kontrapunkt range. With a high quality Nude Ortofon Replicant 100 aluminium stylus, the Cadenza Bronze is able to extract even more detail from your records, lifting sound quality and putting you in the heart of the audience.

Press Reviews

  • "Smooth and engaging high end MC slightly warmer and more relaxed presentation than its superb bigger brother." (Hi-Fi World Magazine World Standards)

    This cartridge digs deep into the groove bypassing surface noise and not emphasising or distorting high frequencies. Shibata profiles can sound warmer but is it faithful to the groove? There has to be a reason why microline styli last longer than other stylus profiles and it is because they more closely resemble the record cutting head and are thus subject to less wear on the record as well as the stylus. They are more critical in terms of alignment, azimuth, tracking angle though than shibata styli so correct set up is essential.
    Still if you want to hear all that is on your discs…………?
