Ortofon Cadenza Red vs ZYX R100
I am looking to upgrade my cartridge. I like both Ortofon and ZYX cartridges but never owned any of their models. My budget is $1500 max. My listening involves all kinds of music and all kind of records !!! 50% of my records are oldies, decent condition but not great. So, I am looking for a cart which is a good balance between accuracy and musicality, and has low groove noise. And one parameter that really means a lot to me is Timing.
My TT is a Nouvelle Platine Verdier and tonearm is SME3012 S2.
I have short listed two cartridges:
Ortofon Cadenza Red
ZYX R100 Yatra
Please share your thoughts. These are expensive cartridges so I want to make at least a reasonably informed decision.
