Ortofon Cadenza Mono - the true Mono cartridge
The Cadenza Mono model is made with a nude fine line stylus and a cylindrical aluminium cantilever. For easy 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. The coils are made from 6NX (99.9999 %) pure silver wire. An improved winding process on the armature allows a better channel balance.
Sharing internal build with the 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!
