    Wow!! Another one joining the Ortofon Cadenza B club
    Have I ever said I'm a big fan by any chance ? !!

    Don't expect a cart that throws in your face ballsy excitement at you - it doesn't impose itself.

    It is very neutral, digs deep and gets hold of whats been recorded \ the music.

    Expect the qualities of what the 2MB does but even more refinement and detail \ information of texture timbre and seperation of individual parts and nuances.

    Plays all genres with poise and balance - I love mine unashamedly

    Can we have an Ortofon group? I may be about to join too. Albeit not with a Cadenza Black.

    You'll be glad to know Jamie it isn't as painful to set up as the 2MB.

    Still requires careful meticulous setup and vta sensitive - slightly negative rake too like the other Shibata Ortofons in my experience.
