Ortofon 2M Red MM Cartridge
Ortofon cartridges are very informative and well extended at both frequency extremes and this one seems to fit that pattern. In fact the treble is notably clean and tidy, full of life without ever becoming strident or harsh.’Tech Radar.
A great first upgrade
If you’re looking for a step-up in performance from your existing budget cartridge then the Ortofon 2M Red is hard to beat. Featuring Ortofon’s unique split pole pins, the 2M Red gives an even and balanced response making the music sound as natural as possible. The highly polished, tipped elliptical diamond gives excellent tracking without causing excessive wear to your vinyl, and as it’s supplied with a simple to use fitting kit, swapping it over is easy.
