2M Series

Replacement stylus for the flagship 2M Black moving magnet cartridge.

All 2M cartridges' styli can be interchanged with replacement styli from the rest of the series, but the 2M Bronze and Black have a superior cartridge body, when compared to the 2M Red and Blue. You will therefore not get the full performance of a 2M Black by placing a 2M Black Stylus on a 2M Red body - though the sound will be vastly improved. Similarly, a 2M Red Stylus will be a notable downgrade to a 2M Bronze or Black cartridge.

The 2M Black is Ortofon's top-of-the-line moving magnet cartridge. Boasting phenomenal sound and high-end specifications, the cartridge is well at home on even the most sophisticated of turntables, which makes this a great upgrade option for the 2M Bronze cartridge.

  • Replacement stylus for Ortofon 2M Black cartridge
  • Shibata diamond stylus tip
  • Detailed sound reproduction throughout the spectrum, including even the most high frequency groove information
  • Reduced distortion and record wear
