Nude Shibata diamond on a boron cantilever

Stylus

The 2M Black LVB 250 upgrades the great build of the 2M Black with a Nude Shibata diamond on a boron cantilever. The use of an extremely stiff and lightweight Boron cantilever adds remarkable transparency, speed, and responsiveness.

The Nude Shibata stylus’ slim, highly polished profile allows an exceedingly wide contact area to the groove walls and ensures notably detailed reproduction throughout the spectrum, including even the highest frequencies.

Multi Wall Carbon Nano Tubes (MWCNT)

Features

To attain an optimal interaction between compliance and damping, a new rubber compound for the suspension system has been developed. The new rubber compound formula is based on the Multi Wall Carbon Nano Tubes' (MWCNT) highly efficient nano filler. The new MWCNT-based compound offers desirable mechanical properties, which ensure better damping and improve the overall performance of the cartridge.

... Compared to a good quality MC cartridge, the LVB 250 is a viable, quite equal option. The sound is airy, and at the same time, the top end of the spectrum is peaceful and accurate. The Ortofon 2M Black LVB 250 is a civilized cartridge that is easy to live with.

Audio Review

... The 2M Black LVB 250 is one of the best MM cartridges on the market ... The sound it proposes is realistic, warm, and rich in detail and can reach excellent dynamic excursions. Drawn to its considerable experience, the Danish manufacturer (Ortofon - red.) has created a high-level sound detector that would not disfigure even in comparison with many MCs. The adoption of an excellent Boron cantilever and the suspension system shows that even MM can have their say in ambitious analog chains ...

We are used to the idea that nothing can be compared with a good MC cartridge for the best sound resolution, but the Ortofon 2M Black LVB 250 comes to challenge this idea with its high performance, based on advanced technology ...
Ortofon's 2M Black LVB 250 is a MM cartridge with extreme performance and technology ... This one here is, beyond any doubt, a queen.

It fits the bill with a silky, sophisticated presentation especially well-suited to classical, jazz, and acoustic music. Refined and composed, it uses a version of the stylus and cantilever found in the company’s Cadenza Black moving-coil cartridge. This, along with a new suspension, all contributes to a sound that boasts rock-solid imaging, great stereo focus, and depth along with a smooth, lush view of strings and other acoustic instruments.
