Product Description

Ortofon 2MR blue moving magnet MM phono cartridge is a slightly lower profile version of the excellent 2M Blue, which has been designed for turntables from brands like Rega where a low-form factor cartridge is needed and/or where VTA is not adjustable and the standard 2M model is too high.

This shorter height is also useful if you wish to upgrade your turntable with a thicker turntable mat or platter upgrade and need to account for this with a shorter height cartridge, again rather than adjusting VTA on the tonearm.

Key Features

- All-purpose cartridge that delivers an open, dynamic sound
- Tipped Elliptical diamond stylus profile
- Overhead mounting cartridge for installing into a headshell
- Moving magnet cartridge with removable stylus
- Utilises Ortofon's split-pole pin technology to reduce the eddy current and to get a flat frequency response, like with an MC cartridge
- Can be upgraded with other styli from the Ortofon 2M range
- Anti-resonant Hopelex body
- Reduced-height 2MR cartridge body

Press Reviews

  • Exceptional insight and smoothness allied to fine tracking makes this a great buy for those seeking a modern sound (Hi-Fi World magazine)

  • ...the Ortofon worked fine from new and cold...well - focused and relatively neutral sound, tidy and tuneful...not so obviously contoured in the mid-bass and treble, sounding...more focused around a level midband....could find low bass where needed...given rock or jazz material...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 (Hi-Fi News magazine)

  • "Modern, high resolution budget moving magnets that are always an engaging listen." Ortofon 2M Red / Blue (Hi-Fi World Magazine World Standards)
