More Information


The Ortofon 2M Bronze features a nude Fine Line diamond stylus, which is particularly suited for demanding applications. The slim profile of the Fine Line stylus will track even the highest frequency information, making it a must for discerning listeners. Additionally, its larger footprint ensures reduced distortion and record wear.

The cartridge body used for the 2M Bronze is manufactured from a newly-developed Lexan DMX Piano Black, a revolutionary material which ensures high rigidity while eliminating unwanted resonances. The 2M Bronze and 2M Black also have interchangeable stylus units, and replacement styli are readily available in the UK.

Ortofon have optimized the design for ease of mounting the cartridge, weight and size to fit the most common turntables at the market today. The Ortofon 2M Series provides excellent compatibility in an assortment of playback systems and with a wide variety of phono preamps.

Excellent. Brighter, more punchy sound with well controlled and precise bass. Instruments and voice sound stage really good. Doesn't track quite as well as replaced cartridge on HFS75 (hence 4 star rather than 5) but nevertheless very good. Sound has improved during the course of 50+ albums played. Very happy with purchase.

Excellent Cartridge.
24 January 2017

Packaging was not fancy, small card box containing vacuum moulded inserts to protect the cartridge - but no point in paying for a presentation case. I did not need the included stylus balance or screwdriver either, but many buyers will benefit from these tools. Delivery was free and very fast. Price was best on the market. Cart sounds fine, exactly what I wanted.

Far superior to the 2m blue which I had already. As good as Ive heard under £500, and that includes the 2m black. The headshell makes perfect sense, as I wouldve spent £50+ on one anyway, and this way I dont have to spend time with a protractor. Superb, and I highly recommend, even if you favour MC.
