CONCLUSION

Both these new Cadenza cartridges are a fantastic hi-fi experience. They represent the best of modern LP playing technology and lift sound quality into the laps of the Gods. They achieve a level of fidelity that silences my critical faculties. Yes, they are expensive but if you have the money their sound borders on magically beautiful. It hardly comes any better from LP.  Well, there is a Cadenza Black, but my imagination can't quite stretch to how that can sound better than the Bronze at present. And whilst I survived my journey back with the Blue and Bronze carrying a Black would be like trying to get the Cullinan Diamond out of Africa and I may not be so lucky in such circumstances.


verdict five globes


Wonderful sound from two great moving coil cartridges, both able to give astonishingly good results from LP. Breathtakingly good.
