The Nude FG80 diamond is mounted on a conical aluminum cantilever yielding very linear frequency response over the entire frequency range-at the same time ensuring very high tracking ability.
Recommended load resistance between 50 and 100 Ohm depending on personal preference of openness. Higher load resistance will always tend to more liveliness and space in sound-image.
Ortofon Golden Ear Panel statement says:
The sound from the Rondo Bronze cartridge is very detailed in its spectrum and differentiates the sound source in a refined and homogenous manner. Big orchestral music will be reproduced powerful yet well controlled and open up space around the instruments.
