The low signals from the cartridge are very sensitive to electromagnetic induced noise from the outside world. Things like mobile phones and home appliances challenge the tonearm cable.
With this focus, Ortofon engineers have made a cable comprised of 7 cores 5N/6N Oxygen Free Copper (OFC) with a tight shield surrounding the cores for optimum shielding against electrical radiated noise.
After over a week of burn-in I conclude without a doubt this cable is one of the best sounding especially designed for tonearm. I used it with Teac TN550 analogue turntable with Grado Prestige 1 Gold MM cartridge connected to my preamplifier’s phonostage through a plinius SA50 power amplifier.
6NX-TSW1010R offers alot of details, depth, vocal is upfront, wider soundstage, bigger and tighter bass with richer mids and higher treble and more refined sound quality, the control of the instruments is palpable and general air of exuberence while listening.
I would be careful to introduce it to listener who prefer a laid back sound quality. If you have an audio system with sufficient resolution and free from acoustic problems – this is it !

“While I listen to several albums on vinyl—with an SME 10 turntable and Dynavector 17D3 cartridge—a few consistent characteristics emerge. This cable offers a big sound, meaning that it supports a huge soundstage, with both width and height. Vocals sound very upfront, both as part of the perceived stage and in terms of their relation to the drivers.
Bass is deep but a touch reticent in the mix. This cable delivers a lot of detail without the sound becoming strident or sibilant. It brings the listener to the front of the auditorium. Those desiring a more laid-back and organic presentation might find this cable a bit much, but for those seeking a more upfront sonic delivery, the Ortofon could be just the ticket”
