Ortofon Cadenza Bronze
The Cadenza Bronze model is using a Replicant 100 stylus and a conical aluminium cantilever.
The coil wire is the famous Ortofon Aucurum wire, which is a gold plated 6NX copper wire.
Field Stabilizing Element/FSE, is used for optimal linearity especially during complex crescendo passages.
Cadenza Bronze is a true high-end reference cartridge, conveying music with supreme precision, impact and dynamics. Its stereo imaging capabilities illuminate the farthest corners of the soundstage in all three dimensions.
