"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 Great upgrade from Orofon 5E ! Brought this a couple of weeks ago to upgrade an Ortofon 5E used on a Project Debut that had lasted a good 15 years of occasional use, with much more frequent use in the past 3 years. Quite simply, wow - it has been like hearing my vinyl with renewed subtly, vigour and colour, wish i'd upgrade to the 2M Red years ago. The fitting was pretty simple after paying some attention to alignment and tracking weight I was all done in 15 minutes. With a pair of Grado SR 80e's (also from Richer Sound) Steve Reich's 'Music for 18 musicians' is even more sublime, rasping rhythmic bass clarinets and all. Floating Points 'Crush' is tight and detonating more sub-sonic nitro-glycerine during Les Alpx. Very, very happy with this cartridge - and now getting curious about the 5M Blue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic service from Plymouth branch Having won a £50 Richer Sound voucher I decided to upgrade my Denon DP300 F to this outstanding cartridge. Even during Covid restrictions the person named J gladly fitted it for free at an agreed date and all done on the same day. This cartridge is worth the effort and the red housing looks great on any black turntable. Really pleased with how it looks and sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound investment Bought this cartridge to 'rejuvenate' my old Dual CS505-1 turntable, having bought a new amp. Easy to fit, looks the part, but more importantly sounds really good. Has brought the old turntable up to date and is more green than ditching the whole turntable for a new one

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Having dusted off my Revolver, I immediately started to wonder if I could improve it at all. Has stock arm and somewhat newer AT95. I was actually after the Goldring E3, but that was out of stock and I was politely steered towards the 2M Red as an alternative. A bit more expensive but still not at all a lot of money. Arrived today, 2 days ahead of schedule, and I tried it straight away. An astonishing improvement. Clarity and separation are massively improved and detail appears that I had no idea was in there. If you're after a decent upgrade at a very decent price then I would highly recommend one of these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value I had some reservations after reading some negative reviews, but I needed a new cartridge fairly quickly for a Technics sl 1210 I had just ordered, my old 1210 was running on a Stanton 500 and a new stylus is not possible without buying a cheap generic one. Obviously the being aimed for home use versus the Stanton which is aimed at DJs there is a noticeable difference with badly looked after records, but sound wise there is very little in it. This cartridge does not deserve the bad reviews it has had, there are better, but for the money it is excellent and using this has given me the confidence to upgrade to either the Bronze cartridge or a Blue stylus in the near future, I find it quite clean and of a good quality, a true audiophile might want to pay more for something better, but for the money this is an excellent purchase.
