Ortofon MC Cadenza Black

I have no words to describe how excellent the MC Cadenza black is! No grove noise, musical, detailed - I can identify each and every instrument playing in the background, I can listen to the music hours at a time and want to keep listening even more. I a paired the cadenza with Technics 1210G, Yamaha C-5000 pre and Yamaha M-5000 power amp. I have only used the cartridge for about 20 hours now and hoping that it will produce even better music after 50 hours initial break-in period.
