Just thought I'd fill you all in , received a News letter from Ortofon about having a 100th Anniversary sale on certain cartridges. The 2M Blue is one of them. Per Ortofon the sale prices will be in effect in a few weeks in the US. Right now it's in Europe. Just a heads up if you planned on a cartridge upgrade.

Everyone should stock up on the 2M Black. Best currently produced cartridge in the world. 
I wonder if Ortofon will be releasing an 100th anniversary A100 cartridge?
