Ortofon – Cadenza Bronze Moving Coil Phono Cartridge
Jaguar is an Authorized Retailer for all Ortofon products. A true reference cartridge by any measure, Ortofon’s Cadenza Bronze conveys music with smashing precision, musicality, and dynamics. The Cadenza Bronze is a touch more forgiving than the Black, making it an ideal choice for turntable setups that need a little cushion added into the mix with the turntable and phono preamplifier.
The Cadenza Bronze employs a Replicant 100 stylus, conical aluminum cantilever, and Ortofon’s famous Aucurum 6N gold-plated copper wire, the Cadenza Bronze is an analog lover’s dream. The Ortofon Bronze possesses superb resolution, able to illuminate the furthest reaches of the sound stage, and it does so with striking warmth and musicality. In a world of excellent phono cartridges, the Bronze shines as a clearly superior design.
“Now the music thundered out into the room, and I stopped wondering what the musicians were using in the studio and enjoyed the music. Every LP I played sprang from my loudspeakers with a such a beautifully honed clarity and vivid dynamics that I spent evenings happily transfixed.”
