Description

The Ortofon 2M Blue cartridge is the second cartridge of this new and already famous 2M range of the Danish constructor.

This range was designed in partnership with the Moller Jensen Design agency, which has developed other high-end products such as the Ortofon Mc Jubilee and Kontrapunkt cartridges!

Ortofon 2M Blue: technology

All the models in this series (4 in total) feature a magnetic system that comprises a divided magnet.

This is not really a new technology as Ortofon invented it and already proposed it on the 500 models. But here it has been specially improved and optimised, noticeably reducing the distortion and particularly improving the linearity and extent of the frequency response especially in the treble which is often the weakness of moving magnet cartridges.

The intention of the manufacturer was clearly to propose a moving magnet cartridge with performances close to the ones achieved by a moving coil.

This 2M Blue features the generator of the 2M Red, but its very high quality stylus has a fairly complex profile called Nude elliptical.

Ortofon 2M Blue: listening and review

The dynamic range is outstanding. The top of the spectrum is highly defined with no sharpness

The bass is much deeper than on the 2M Red but always with a great deal of expression and precision.

The voices sound like they are in the room and very expressive. The detail of the sound quality is one of the most demonstrative in this price range.

This Ortofon 2M Blue cartridge boasts much less surface noise than the 2M Red and its balance is much more realistic.

Outstanding value for money!

EXCELLENT RAPPORT QUALITÉ/PRIX

Souhaitant remplacer ma cellule Ortofon OM10 d'origine, cette 2M Blue fait passer la restitution sonore dans une autre dimension et le gain de qualité est spectaculaire. Merci à l'équipe de maplatine.com pour ses conseils.
Équipement: platine PRO-JECT ESSENTIAL III Record Master et enceinte pré-amplifiée SAMSUNG DA-E750

2 MM BLUE

La blue a remplacé la silver sur une platine RPM 3 Carbon. Une fois rodée cette cellule m'a complètement ravis, mes oreilles ont apprécié la différence. Un vrai bonheur...
Configuration : un ampli Pioneer SA 8800, une paire d'enceintes B&W CM7et la project RPM3.

Quelle claque !!!!

A peine reçu déjà monté avec toute la précaution qui s’impose. En remplacement d’une Ortofon 10M, le résultat est tellement jouissif que j’ai peur de m’habituer trop vite. Bref une très bonne définition, un équilibre parfait et un grave qui descend bas que l’on a envie de monter le volume. Mes Dynaudio sont aux anges .
Merci à l’équipe de Ma Platine

Excellente

Depuis Décembre 2016 je l'utilise en remplacement de la 2M red et sincèrement le son est vraiment très bon. Basse bien ronde, aigus très précis et médium très présent. On gagne en stéréo en dynamisme et en précision d'écoute. Rien a voir avec la Red.
Je regrette absolument pas mon achat.
Petite précision quelle demande un réglage très précis de l'alignement.
