'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 Excellent sound and value An excellent trade up cartridge beyond the starter cartridge. THis cartridge tracks very well,and has a beautiful mid range and very clean treble and a very good stero soundstage. Arrived promptly and was notified of an hour long delivery window. The package arrived within a minute of the hour notified.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ortofon 2m red I’d thought about upgrading for some time, so glad I did, the extra performance is outstanding, and another thing that makes it great is the company I got it from, RICHER SOUNDS REALLY ARE ONE OF THE BEST, CANT RECOMMEND ENOUGH, 5 Star service

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent range of sound This is a great cartridge. Every part of the sound is clear and there is a lot of depth. Despite this, there's very little static or interference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revives an otherwise superb turntable. I originally bought my Pro-Ject Debut Carbon from Nottingham Richer Sounds, so naturally returned three years later for a replacement needle. We live 40 mins away and they dropped the price of the cartridge as they didn't stock just the needle. I have always found their level of customer service exemplary and totally approachable, unlike other audio specialists and would never shop anywhere else. Thank you again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT REPLACEMENT CARTIDGE I was looking for a good replacement for the Stock cartridge on the Denon turntable. After looking at various online review I chose the Ortofon 2m Red. I'm very happy as it was easily fitted and sounds great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the price, excellent. Using somewhat ancient speakers and a turntable with a venerable SME 2009 arm (both from the 1970s), this MM cartridge produces excellent detailed bass and midtones. However - and probably because of the environment in which it is being played and the amp - the treble is a little bright and requires some tonal adjustments. An excellent compromise at the price - but set it up carefully ie playing weight and bias plus geometry. Richer Sounds gave me invaluable advice on what to buy without busting the sensible budget!
