Find your old records as well as new micro groove mono records and experience the Cadenza Mono!
The Cadenza Mono model is made with a Nude Fine Line stylus and a cylindrical aluminium cantilever. The stylus 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.
For easy use the pins are connected so you get the same signal from both pairs of connecting pins.
Sharing internal build with the Cadenza Red and with optimized adjustments for mono playback the sound is relaxed, homogeneous and moderate.

"...Tonal qualities of the instruments were nicely textured and displayed...
...found the Mono seemed unperturbed by musical genre, and tracked perfectly through the most worn and damaged records that I could find...
...If you have many monophonic records...then a dedicated mono cartridge is most definately the best way to play them...The results are tightly timed, awash with musical detail and colour...undisturbed by sonic nasties...An insightful, detailed and musical cartridge..."
