Cadenza Bronze is a true high-end reference cartridge, conveying music with supreme precision, impact and dynamics.

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 stereo imaging capabilities illuminate the farthest corners of the soundstage in all three dimensions


"The Ortofon Cadenza Bronze is tough to beat.  Most other cartridges offering this level of performance, revealing this much music in such an unobtrusive way, tend to cost at least a thousand dollars more – hence our willingness to bestow one of our Exceptional Value Awards"    read the review in Tone Magazine
