MC Cadenza Black

The Cadenza Black model features a Nude Shibata stylus with a boron cantilever. The effective mass of the stylus/cantilever system is extremely low due to the use of a very thin boron rod. This material is extremely stiff and transmits sound vibrations faster than aluminium.

It also uses the WRD (Wide Range Damping-system), controlling the high and low frequency damping separately.

Cadenza Black is optimized for an amazing tonal neutrality, dynamics and purity of sound. It is high performing on areas like detail, consistency and sound staging, while still retaining a fluid body and ample musicality.
