Ortofon 2M BLUE

– an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV and an optimized sound reproduction and a high level of sonic accuracy

– Nude Elliptical diamond and split pole pins with a copper wire

2M Blue adds more dynamics and resolution, sounds more open and reproduces more details than 2M Red

“…the Ortofon worked fine from new and cold…well – focused and relatively neutral sound, tidy and tuneful…
…more focused around a level midband….could find low bass where needed…
…had a very impressive ability to sound balanced…
…allowing a performance to be listened into with ease…
…will suit anyone after a more natural sound..
