"Ortofon cartridges are very informative and well extended at both frequency extremes and this one seems to fit that pattern. In fact the treble is notably clean and tidy, full of life without ever becoming strident or harsh." Tech Radar.

A great first upgrade

If you're looking for a step-up in performance from your existing budget cartridge then the Ortofon 2M Red is hard to beat. Featuring Ortofon's unique split pole pins, the 2M Red gives an even and balanced response making the music sound as natural as possible. The highly polished, tipped elliptical diamond gives excellent tracking without causing excessive wear to your vinyl, and as it's supplied with a simple to use fitting kit, swapping it over is easy.

Already used as standard on many mid-range turntables, the Ortofon 2M Red is the ideal upgrade.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So so performance I bought this on the back of selling my shure v15 mkIII and deciding to buy a new cartridge and stylus after a few upgrades to my stereo system.Ive got a sony ps4300 direct drive turntable circa 1970's this was the technics of its day and to mind still beats any technics, which I've had for years even sold a pro-ject because I preferred this. Anyway I digress the cartridge was easy enough to fit (having set up plenty in the past) this was relatively easy and fuss free and up and running in not less than 10 mins (wow did I do it wrong). Anyway I like a bit of status quo (I dont apologise for that) so piledriver came out and played, theres a beautiful track on side one called 'A Year' it's a dark yet soulful slice of quo at their best and the playing is superb,when I had the shure on it picked up all the nuances of the track from the quiet contemplation to the loud crescendo of Messrs Parfitt & Rossi's twin telecasters and the warm soulful vocals, unfortunately with the ortofon none of that is there it's not as clear it's kinda muffled and muddied and just hasn't got what it takes to pick out the detail like the shure I know it's a different cartridge &stylus but the ortofon leaves the music feeling cold. I also tried rory Gallagher's tattoo and same again lifeless....I also had a problem when it was delivered as the box had been opened before it came to me, a quick email to richer sounds and got a tenner refund...overall great service but in no way shape or form do I recommend the ortofon

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value cartridge I had not used my ancient Technics SL150 with ADC carbon fibre arm and ADC xlm cartridge for about 20 years. Bought this cartridge to get it back in use. Excellent choice. Great value for money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing clarity I installed my Ortofon 2M cartridge in 10 minutes all set up. It sounds amazing, full of detail and transparency. A very good choice for me. A worthwhile upgrade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit I was looking for a cartridge that would fit in my Goldring Lenco GL78 tone arm, as this is quite a large head shell, it needed something substantial to not look odd, I always use the OM series in my other decks, but that looked ridiculous in the Lenco. So I opted for the 2m instead. I am very pleased, looks good, and sounds stunning, and as usual, Richer sounds were just incredible, quick dispatch and full updates on delivery. 10/10

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ortofon 2M Red I needed to replace the AT 95 phono cartridge, bought only a year or so ago, damaged in our recent house move. On the advice of the knowledgeable man at Richer Sounds, I bought the Ortofon 2M Red and am delighted I did so. The sound produced on my Thorens/SME deck is impressive - much more detail, far fewer pops and crackles from the surface of my old LPs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New lease of life. I have a 40 year old Sony PS-X600 record player which has recently been taken out of storage and needed a new Ortofon stylus. I was delighted when Richer Sounds ordered one for me and was over the moon to hear my treasured record player sounding wonderful. A new lease of life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound I bought a replacement for my old Shure cartridge because getting a new stylus had become a problem. Wish I had changed to Ortofon ages ago. The improvement in sound makes me well up. I'm delighted.
