At Ortofon we constantly look for new technology to be used in our products and push
the performance of existing technology. Thus we assure the highest level of performance
and quality. The Kontrapunkt models and MC Jubilee became market standards and are
among our most popular cartridges.
Nevertheless Ortofon decided to develop a new cartridge series that is even more
ambitious. By carefully implementing cobalt-iron pole pieces, new improved winding
process on the armature, using extruded aluminium housing in the models as well as
other changes, we have been able to reveal new possibilities in performing the analogue
It was also decided to make a more complete range of cartridges, which meant an introduction
of a moving coil Cadenza Mono model to support our customers, who have an extended
interest in micro groove mono records. We believe that our faithful and new customers
will enjoy the playback of their precious analogue records even more now.
Cadenza Mono The Ortofon Cadenza Mono is the last addition to the Cadenza range, and
it brings high-quality pick-up technology back to the now often over-looked world
of mono recordings. The Cadenza Mono 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.
Sharing internal build with 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 Cadenza Mono in all its glory.
