Ortofon Cadenza Red - Moving Coil Phono Cartridge

- Approximate 200 hours use
- Original Box, Hardware and Manual all as when new
- To both the dealer and myself this moving coil leans ever so slightly to the warm side. With my system all tubes, it was ever so slightly too warm for me and I went with a more analytical cartridge. I would think this would be a great cartridge for a mostly solid state setup, for individuals who enjoy a leaning on the warmer sound or are maybe those seeking small increments to tame high frequencies.
