"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 4 out of 5 by from Prompt delivery The replacement needle was well overdue Hence when fitted the sound quality was instantly much better! The fitting was tricky. The screws difficult to remove and replace ( flat heads ) but after a lot of patience it was achieved with rewarding results!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement for Rega Bought after discussing with Salestaff to replace Rega Green which is no longer available. Delivered in 5 days unfortunately delivery company had us staying in 2 days changing their schedules. Downside was scales to weigh the Cartridge weren't part of part so had to buy from Amazon delaying fitting by another day. On the plus side an excellent cartridge and improvement the genuine Rega.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love Richer sounds They really do have amazing customer service. I don’t yet know how good the product is but I do know how good they are and how much they try and help And Go so far… Specifically they stayed later in order to put my stylus on the timetable on a Sunday or maybe it was the Saturday after closing time. I’ve been going there since I was a student and I’m 55 now so I really do know. It’s a great shop with a great ethic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, great service I needed a new phono cartridge but wasn’t confident in fitting it myself. So I rang Richer Sounds Southampton and spoke to Rob, who suggested I popped in that afternoon with my head shell and we could chat about replacement options and then he would fit the cartridge for me. After Rob talked me through the options, pros and cons of different cartridges, I settled on the Ortofon Red. Rob took the time to fit it, checking alignment. The result, a fantastic cartridge fitted perfectly. Thanks Rob!
