Ortofon Hi-Fi 2M Black - moving magnet cartridge

Regular price $999.00 Sale

Winner of The Absolute Sound 's 2008 "Product of the Year" Award

The flagship Ortofon 2M Black utilizes a Shibata stylus (usually not found on cartridges any where near this price). With a heavily upgraded generator and a proprietary body material, the 2M Black is exceedingly fast, detailed yet supremely musical. An excellent value and has earned our highest recommendation!

“The 2M Red is the entry level and 2M Black is the flagship. The 2M Black has a light, fast touch with good treble extension. Its greatest attribute is the way it provides a more transparent window on the world of micro-energies, permitting it to plumb the depths of soundstaging and dimensionality. Their performance is a fitting tribute to Ortofon and chief engineer Per Windfield!” – Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound , Product of Year Award Issue
