Manufacturer Description

The Absolute Sound Product of the Year and Editors' Choice Awards-Winning Ortofon 2M Red Sets the Standard for Entry-Level High-End Moving-Magnet Phono Cartridges The Ortofon 2M Red MM phono cartridge  is as good as audiophile-grade moving-magnet types come at its price point. It  features  Ortofon's trademark split pole pins, an invention which enables moving-magnet cartridges to have flat frequency response, just like a moving-coil cartridge.   2M Red also uses an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV. The 2M Red features a tipped elliptical diamond , engineered for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. The Japanese company's  2M series was developed in conjunction with Danish designer Møller Jensen Design. Inspired by the facets of a diamond, whose contours gracefully trace the grooves on a record's surface,  2M 's handsome elegance establishes a great combination of form and functionality.  Ortofon' s philosophy is to make cartridges which reproduce the record grooves as accurately as possible, without coloring the sound. The 2M series design has been optimized for ease of mounting and their weight and size fit virtually any current turntable. "[This] is one sophisticated and musical cartridge-for the price of a nice dinner for two." -Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound , Editors' Choice Award "It's worth experimenting, because at best this is one of the most detailed cartridges we've come across at this kind of price." - Tech Radar  "The midrange is full and expressive, handling vocals with sensitivity and warmth. The bass and treble interact well here, and while we'd like more authority from the bass, it's a minor quibble that we can live with." - What Hi-Fi? , four-star review
