Historical Product

Reference Blue

The new Ortofon Reference Interconnect cables Series is designed and manufactured by Ortofon Japan. The Reference Blueis a dynamic and high-resolution cable that reveals detailed reproduction throughout the spectrum.

4N HiFC (High performance pure copper) combined with 4N OFC (Oxygen-free copper) in the correct proportions ensures transparent and stable wide-range sound. The three bundles of the different conductors are placed in an equilateral triangle, hold into position and dampened by Halogen-free highly resilient elastomer material.

Easy and stable connection

The original Ortofon gold plated RCA terminals feature a collet chuck mechanism, which ensures easy and stable connection over time, even when connected and disconnected many times.

  • Cable capacitance: 360 pF/m
  • Cable length: 1.0 m or 1.5 m
  • Terminal type: RCA
  • 2 pieces per set
