Cadenza Series

The Cadenza Series of high-end Moving Coil (MC) cartridges was born out of the success of Ortofon's Kontrapunkt and MC Jubilee models. Though these models are amongst the most popular Ortofon has ever produced, the Danish cartridge masters still decided to develop a new range that was even more ambitious.

The name Cadenza comes from the Italian word for cadence, and refers to the section in a concert where the orchestra stops playing, leaving the soloist to play alone in free time without a strict, regular pulse. A Cadenza can be written or improvised, but it's usually the most elaborate and virtuosic part the solo instrument plays during the whole piece. It therefore seemed fitting that such a capable and nuanced cartridge series should use the same name.

By carefully implementing cobalt-iron pole pieces,  using new improved winding processes on the armature, and employing an extruded aluminium housing - amongst other changes - the Cadenza Series is able to out-perform all those that came before it. Like other modern ranges, the Cadenza Series is structured in Ortofon's preferred colour-tier nomenclature; so there are Red, Blue, Bronze, Black and Mono (White) variants available to suit varying budgets and tastes. 

As with all modern Ortofon ranges, the Mono cartridge in the Cadenza Series is the White model. The Ortofon Cadenza Mono brings high-quality pick-up technology back to the now often over-looked world of mono recordings. The Ortofon Cadenza Mono is made with a Nude Fine-Line stylus and a cylindrical aluminium cantilever. For easy use the rear pins are connected internally, so you get the same signal from both pairs of pins. The stylus radius is r/R 8/40 µm, perfect for most mono records.

Sharing the same internal build as the stereo Cadenza Red, and with optimized adjustments for mono playback, the sound is relaxed, homogeneous and moderate. Dig out your old records, as well as new micro-groove mono records and experience the Ortofon Cadenza Mono in all its glory.
