The Cadenza Blue model is a moving coil cartridge using a Nude FG 70 stylus with a very thin ruby cantilever. It remains true to the music with a tremendous clarity.

The coils are made from 6NX (99.9999 %) pure silver wire. An improved winding process on the armature allows a better channel balance.

The soundstage of Cadenza Blue is wide open and grandiose straight out of the box. Micro dynamic and ambience will be evident when listening to complex compositions. It reaches a very high degree of definition.
