'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 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent upgrade for budget turntable 2 years ago I bought a Pro-ject Essential II with which I was broadly happy, except I felt some depth was missing from the sound. It also became apparent that many LPs suffered from Inner Groove Distortion, making them virtually unlistenable. Recently I decided to embark on a complete overhaul of my setup, and Step 1 was to upgrade the OM5E cartridge (which I was convinced wasn't doing its job properly, especially as the cart body sat so low it often touched the vinyl) to the 2M Red. I fitted the cart and spun some of the worst LPs, and my world changed. Inner Groove Distortion was virtually eliminated (it's still there, but at such a tiny fraction of what it was that if I wasn't listening for it I wouldn't hear it) and everything sounded warmer and bassier, even at low volumes. I can't recommend this cart enough as an upgrade for budget turntables. It might seem expensive but it will rejuvenate your vinyl collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ortofon M2 Red Cartridge I bought the Ortofon 2M Red cartridge for my old Project II turntable which came with an Ortofon 510 cartridge. With a little patience the cartridge is easy to fit. Allowing the cartridge to "bed in", I noticed a drastic improvement in sound. A richer performance and wider dynamic range with a much improved bass end. I play mostly Jazz plus some classical so detail is important to me and the M2 Red gives it in spades! My Blue Note albums sound awesome! Better still if you want to upgrade to the M2 Blue, you only need to buy the stylus as it fits the same body! My Blue Note albums sound awesome! Highly recommended.

I have already passed on contact details to my brother who is seeking a similar item. Would not hesitate to recommend or visit again for any item. Thank You
