The sound picture of Cadenza Red is relaxed, homogeneous and moderately dynamic and have great space and depth in the stereo image.
The Cadenza Red model is using a Nude Fine Line stylus with a cylindrical aluminium cantilever. The stylus tip radius is r/R 8/40 µm.
The coils are made from 6NX (99.9999 %) pure silver wire.
An improved winding process on the armature allows a better channel balance.
«… I was quite surprised at the detail and sophistication of the first in line Ortofon Cadenza (Red) moving coil. …it does extract a ton of detail and shades the detail with expression and accurate dynamics.» (Audiophilia)
