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