Ortofon 2M Mono Review – Does a Mono Phono Cartridge Sound Better?

... the overall sound is more cohesive. There was a sense of depth in the low end that was missing with a stereo cart, and the top end was less washy, and much more focused. There is something quite magical about a mono recording like this, where everything needs its own space across the frequency spectrum to find space in the mix ...
... The 2M Mono is your ticket to unleashing the phenomenal potential of mono.

... Having the Ortofon 2M Mono allows more closeness to these (MONO - red.) recordings ...
It’s rare these days a label releases a mono version. However, the mono recordings have something interesting: in competing for space in a one channel sound, the various instruments create the ambiance of stillness, a hypnotic moment where all is there, the intensity of the moment in its full capacity. And here is where we can make the case that the 2M Mono from Ortofon gets you authentic and superior mono sound.
