Take a step up in sound quality, with the Ortofon 2M Blue.

A step up in sound

With an improved engine, featuring a higher output than the 2M Red, the 2M Blue gives a higher level of sonic accuracy.

Nude Elliptical diamond
Featuring a Nude Elliptical stylus, the 2M Blue creates a wider contact with the groove than the 2M Red model. It’s this increased contact that gives the 2M Blue a more dynamic sound with deeper bass and brighter treble. A wider contact also means less damage to your precious records.

Ideal for budget to mid-range decks
The Ortofon’s wide-ranging abilities make it the ideal choice for all turntables, right up to around £1000. Its balanced sound also means it’s ideal for listening to a wide range of music genres.

Make a move to hear more. Fit the Ortofon 2M Blue to dig out the music.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lively, neutral sound This is an excellent cartrdge for the money and tracks extremely well in my RB220 arm on an old Sota Sapphire turntable. I used a Sure trackability record which it managed with flying colours. Not quite as alive as my expensive Clearaudio cartridge in my main system hence 4 stars!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an absolute brilliant upgrade from the red. Purchased for our Technics SL-1500C as recommended. Listening to Samara Joy album linger awhile. Turns from sounding like a working man’s club to a cathedral. You will not regret it, and at a competitive price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ortofon 2m blue upgrade Thought my pro-ject ellimental turntable was lacking in attack and needed more detail, so opted to swap out the original ortofon 05e cartridge for the 2m blue cartridge, yes it maybe a little overkill fitting a £200 cartridge to a £200 turntable but WOW what a transformation in it's audio quality with a highly polished delivery, I'm amazed at the level of detail and such a tight controlled bass airing more towards a digital sound rather than the usual warmer anologue sound from the 05e cartridge. If your looking at bringing your turntable to life look no further than the ortofon 2m blue cartridge its a world of difference

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant sound, reasonably priced. I bought this for my old Linn Sondek, very happy with the sound. It's really breathed new life into it. I looked at various ones and I certainly would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Upgrade I have been considering an upgrade for my MM cartridge and was recommended an Ortofon by a friend of mine. I was passing by the London Bridge store recently and popped in to discuss other options. The staff were very helpful and I ended up opting for the Ortofon 2M Blue which arrived in the post the next day. I took my time to fit the product carefully and I have been very impressed with the end result.
