Full review of complete Ortofon 2M range available

I'm glad to finally be able to post both parts of my review of the Ortofon 2M series.

Part 1 - The Red and Blue

Part 2 - The Bronze and Black

I also tested using the Bronze and Black styluses on the Red or Blue body as some readers of my initial post expressed an interest.

Hope this is of interest to all turntable owners interested in a high quality Moving Magnet Upgrade.


Alan, I just wanted to thank you for such an excellent, comprehensive review of these cartridges. For whatever reason you may have had as your original motivation in writing these reviews, you've performed a real service for potential buyers.

I own a 2M Black and found your comments to be insightful and similar to my observations. I have a different turntable (Clearaudio Concept) and a different system, naturally, but I found your listening impressions to be very much on the money and placing the Black withn the 2M family was also very informative.

If I wore a hat, I'd tip it. Thank you for a job done extremely well.
