Ortofon 2M Black Phono Cartridge

May 5, 2016


Graeme Budd has posted a review of the Ortofon 2M Black phono cartridge (€600) at TNT Audio. His conclusions:

“At this price the direct MM competitors have to be the Reson Reca and Audio Note IQ2 (both Goldring 1000 series based and 600€). Having lived with and enjoyed the Reca for many years I’d have to say the Ortofon is spot on at this price range. Which one to go for would be taste dependent but the Ortofon’s strengths in detail, imaging, tracking and neutrality make for a compelling case. If you’re looking for a cartridge in this price range, be it MM or MC, it should definitely be on your shortlist.”
