"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 Vinyl back to life Replaced Elektra cartridge which had always had a thin sound with an Ortofon 2m Red. Back to how vinyl should sound. Dusting off the record collection to enjoy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A bit on the bright side Compared to the old VMS 20E MKII i have on my other TT (still have 3 NOS original and 3 JICO Styli so it'll last forever!) this is a bit on the bright side but certainly shines well and alot of details are to be had. I have a blue 2M as well and its better but certainly not night and day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound - well worth the price Upgrade for my Denon turntable. Well balanced sound with extra depth across the base line. Makes my player sound like a more expensive model so a good way to improve your sound without breaking the bank

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade Upgraded from an otherwise pretty decent Ortofon 5E but the difference is immediately noticeable -- fuller sound, better developed bass. It's a great looker, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just amazing sound Reproduction. Amazing sound re-production, I would say it’s very close to digital sound re-production. I made a direct comparison to a non branded cartridge and you can really tell the difference on how good the sound is on the Ortofon. The clarity of the sound is excellent. Well worth spending the extra on a good quality cartridge
