With its smooth, evenly balanced sound, the Ortofon 2M Red makes the perfect cartridge upgrade.

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.

Upgrade the 2M way
The Ortofon 2M Red is a fine cartridge in its own right, but if you want to steadily improve your sound, the modular design makes it easy. As you’re ready to upgrade, simply unclip the stylus and swap to a 2M Blue or 2M Silver for an even more detailed sound.

Hear more music from the groove, with the Ortofon 2M Red.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still Amazed I upgraded my Project turntable from the OE OM5-SE to the Ortofon 2M Red and 6 months in I'm still amazed each time I play a record. Instantly transformed the sound in so many ways - more bass, tighter bass, clearer mid and sharper treble without ever sounding harsh. Had to change the counter weight on the tone arm for one suited to the new cartridge and had to spend a bit of time setting the weight and tracking but well worth it. Thanks Richer Sounds Lichfield for the recommendation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound quality. I needed a replacement cartridge for my Pioneer PL12D turntable and as always the Hull store pointed me in the right direction. This has transformed the sound of the table, such a nice clear open sounds with clean upper treble and nice punchy bass. A no brainer if you're looking for a new cart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference I bought this on recommendation from the staff at Richer Sounds. I didn’t want to be spending a fortune but I wanted to hear a difference. And what a difference! I can hear things I’ve never heard before on albums I know inside out and back to front! Would definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Stylus cartridge Needed a new stylus cartridge for my 40 year old turntable. Useful advice in store and landed up buying recommended one rather than the one I had come in for. Very happy with the one I left with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sharp Bought to replace worn cartridge on AT LP3 - very clear, precise, but needs a system with some depth and warmth to it. Think it wouldn’t suit a thinner sounding system, but it works for me

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ortofon Red cartridge fitted by Richer Sounds I ordered this at Richer Sounds in Bristol. When it arrived I brought in my record deck and they fitted the new cartridge free of charge, and set it all up for me. Great service from Richer Sounds

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound Great sounding cartridge, and the really impressive thing was that it arrived less than 24 hours after I made the online purchase, very impressive
