The Red is wonderfully in balance, nothing jars, nothing compresses. You'll get the air and the musical presence.
The Cadenza Red model is using a Nude Fine Line stylus with a cylindrical aluminium cantilever. The stylus tip radius is r/R 8/40 µm.
The coils are made from 6NX (99.9999 %) pure silver wire.
An improved winding process on the armature allows a better channel balance.

I really like this cartridge. For the price, a favourite moving coil. I'm looking forward to listening further up the colour series line. Interestingly, the Ortofon cartridges change the palate, not just a bump in quality. I'm sure we'll get character and improvement. But in the here and now, lucky analogue fans can get into superior moving coil sound for a relatively inexpensive sum with the Cadenza Red. Very highly recommended.
