ORTOFON REFERENCE INTERCONNECT CABLES NEW


The new Ortofon Reference Interconnect cables Series is designed and manufactured by Ortofon Japan. Each of the new Reference series cables has its individual sonic expression:

- The Reference Red is an all-purpose, decent, but not too expensive cable that would be a great addition to any audio equipment. The sound is relaxed, warm and dynamic with high resolution.
- The Reference Blue is a dynamic and high-resolution cable that reveals detailed reproduction throughout the spectrum. 
- The Reference Bronze has an astonishing wide-range, clear and neutral sound. 
- The Reference Black is a new generation reference audio cable par excellence with a well-balanced, neutral and precise sound.

Ortofon Reference Black cable

Signal conductors are made of PCUHD (Pure Copper Ultra High Durability) in combination with 6N High Purity Copper and 4N HiFC (High performance pure copper). The result is a well-balanced, neutral and precise sound.


Two bundles, each of 4 different kinds of conductors run in parallel and are orientated in such a way that their internal structure are kept asymmetric with respect to each other.

A personification of lossless transmission line, Reference Black model is a high-end masterpiece.

• Cable capacity: 270 pF/m
• Cable length: 1.0 m
• Terminal: RCA or XLR
• 2 pieces per set
