"I have to say, the 2M series from Ortofon is excellent in each of the model's price ranges. Ortofon has been building phono cartridges for many, many years. They really did their homework on these models. The 2M Red is rediculously good for the very low price."--Gene Rubin

Positive Feedback Magazine Review:

Ortofon's 2M Blue catapults moving magnet performance into the modern era. It delivers the high resolution audiophiles expect from cartridges at any price, and does so with remarkable affordability. Like any revealing component, it requires special attention to setup and system matching, but it rewards those efforts in spades. If you're looking for a warm and relaxed cartridge, look elsewhere. If, on the other hand, you're in the market for insightful state-of-the-art performance and moving magnet flexibility on a budget, I can't imagine a more attractive package for around $200. Highly recommended—a bargain. Ed Kobesky
