Tailor your listening experience

Additionally, the 2MR maintains the hallmark of interchangeability, allowing you to explore your records in greater depth and detail. Begin your musical journey with the 2M Red stylus, taking your first step into the world of captivating sound. As you delve deeper into your vinyl collection and upgrade to the series, you'll feel the music come alive, experiencing the pinnacle of audio perfection with the 2M Black LVB stylus, where the sound is so precise and detailed that it feels like you've invited the artist into your home.

High-performance motor system


The 2M Blue features a high-performance motor system with quad coils and Ortofon’s very own invention: split pole pins with a copper wire. This innovation provides a sound reproduction so precise that only your heart dares to skip a beat. The engine offers an increased output of 5.5 mV, optimized sound reproduction, and a high level of sonic accuracy.

Compared to the 2M Red model, the 2M Blue adds more dynamics and resolution, sounds more open, and reproduces more details, taking you one step further on the journey toward authenticity.

The 2MR Blue is clearly our price-performance winner in this test. The MM cartridge manage to achieve fascinating dynamics alongside a wonderfully balanced frequency response for 200 euros. It also forgives small imperfections in the recording or mixing. If you're looking for a cartridge for every occasion and don't want to miss out on the finest sound, this is the right choice for you.
