"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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Massive Improvement Really wish I'd done this upgrade years ago. Has improved my turntables sound massively, I heartily recommend this affordable cartridge. You never know In a year or so's time I might upgrade the stylus to the Ortofon Blue :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ortofon 2M cartridge - beautiful, balanced sound, I bought the Ortofon 2M cartridge a few weeks ago. I found it easy to fit. Once in place, it brought my old LPs back to life: in particular the medium range frequencies are beautiful and I hear detail that had disappeared years ago with my previous cartridge, especially on "busy" recordings (jazz big band, classical orchestral music, rock with loads of saturation).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! A big improvement over the standard cartridge I bought a Denon DP- 300 F about a year ago from R.S. and was quite underwhelmed with the sound. I felt it was quite thin and missing something. So much so, I only bought 2 vinyl albums and wasn't going to purchase anymore. After doing some research I found that a cartridge upgrade might help so I got an Ortofon 2m Red. Wow! what a difference, whatever the something missing was, the 2m Red found it. Much more detail and depth to the sound. I might try a 2m Blue stylus when a replacement stylus is needed. A great buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely open sound Bought this to replace a very old Audio technica cartridge and the difference is massive. Much more detailed and open sound. Great value and exceptional service in the Edinburgh branch - thanks!
