MC Cadenza Black Nude Shibata Diamond

Ortofon Cadenza Black


The Black model is using a Nude Shibata styluswith a boron cantilever. The effective mass of the

stylus/cantilever system is extremely low due to the use of a very thin boron rod. This material is

extremely stiff and even more lightweight than aluminium. It also uses the WRD (Wide Range Damping-system), controlling the high and low frequency damping separately. Cadenza Black is

optimized for an amazing tonal neutrality, dynamics and purity of sound. It is high performing on areas like detail, consistency and sound staging.
