Ortofon 2M Red Moving magnet cartridge

Steve Harris and Paul Miller from HiFi News reviewed the Ortofon 2M Red in a Group Test of £60 - £100 MM Cartridges. The 2M Red was rewarded the 'Outstanding Product' title in this review. Below are some of the comments.

"...had a pleasing ambience...intimate, trembling quality."

"Bass was in proportion...good detail..."

"...realistic without going into hardness."

"...sense of space was still there even in the climaxes."

The 2M Red has diamonds which are polished to the highest standards of the industry. 2M Red has a tipped elliptical diamond.

We have optimized the design for ease of mounting the cartridge, weight and size to fit the most common turntables at the market today.

2M Red has interchangeable stylus units and replacement stylus is available.

2M Red is designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Our philosophy is to play the record sound as accurate as possible, without coloring the sound.

To obtain a flat frequency response as with a Moving Coil cartridge we are using the slit pole pins to reduce the eddy current. The slit pole pins is an Ortofon invention which was presented in the 500 series and the Super OM series.

The 2M Red has slit pole pins. With this improved engine we have been able to increase to output to 5,5 mV.
