Ortofon Ortofon - 2M Blue MM Phono Cartridge

The 2M Blue is an upgrade from the Red. The 2M Blue uses the same structures but employs a highly polished nude-elliptical stylus for much better tracking and quieter reproduction, as it reaches deeper into the record's grooves. The 2M Blue easily outperforms the older, more expensive and very popular OM-30 . The 2M series of cartridges feature Ortofon's trademark split pole pins, an invention which enables moving magnet cartridges to have flat frequency response, just like a moving coil cartridge.  Ortofon invented the Split pole pin technology and were originally offered in the 500 series and Super OM series. The 2M series was developed in conjunction with Danish designer Møller Jensen Design - the same designer who designed the award winning MC Jubilee and very successful Kontrapunkt series.  Inspired by the facets of a diamond, whose contours gracefully trace the grooves on a record's surface, the 2M 's handsome elegance establishes a great combination of form and functionality. The 2M series is designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Ortofon' s philosophy is to make cartridges which reproduce the record grooves as accurately as possible, without coloring the sound. The 2M series design has been optimized for ease of mounting and their weight and size fit virtually any current turntable.  The name 2M was selected among several ideas. Ortofon wanted a modern name which would be both easy to pronounce and to remember, therefore an alpha numerical name was chosen. Mathematically 2M can be also represented as MM , which also happens to be the abbreviation for moving magnet. Of course the 2M isn't just another pretty face. Engineered to the highest standards the 2M series follows Ortofon' s unrelenting commitment to providing the most precise and accurate reproducti

Proudly designed and manufactured in America! <br>To properly mount a phono cartridge, you need to be able to position it so that it remains tangent to the record grooves at all diameters. This is always a compromise. This gauge helps you to mount the cartridge to the headshell for the best compromise. <br>The protractor lets an amateur do professional phono cartridge alignment. In just a few simple steps, the Protractor gives precise alignment for better sound and longer stylus life with any standard phono cartridge and radial tonearm. <br>Made of durable 2mm ABS plastic with mirrored finish allowing you to precisely adjust your cartridge/stylus by providing clear bottom view and top view simultaneously. Easy to follow instructions included! <br>Unlike similar market alternatives our protractor is UV Printed and cured for 3 hours ensuring the highest quality print: so you'll never have to worry about paint peeling off like with comparable cheap Chinese products! <br>Note: If you are hard of sight, like some of us on the team at Hudson Hi-Fi, we encourage you to consider the "High Contrast" color option, which will provide better visibility without the mirrored effect. <br><br> Guide:<br> 1. Place this protractor on your turntable platter with hole over spindle.<br> 2. Move cartridge/ tonearm until stylus rests exactly on center of bulls eye. (120.9mm radius). Check that cartridge is square with outer set of grid lines. - If not, loosen cartridge mounting screws and twist cartridge lightly until it is square.<br> 3. Move cartridge/ tonearm until stylus rests exactly on center of inner bulls-eye (66.04mm radius), Rotate protractor around spindle as required. Check that cartridge is square with inner set of grid lines. - If not, change overhang, (move cartridge in or out along the axis) until cartridge is square.<br> 4.

Rega Bias 2 MM Phono Cartridge The Redesigned Rega Bias 2 Goes Where Other Budget Cartridges Don't The Rega Bias 2 may be the entry-level moving magnet cartridge in the Rega line, but this completely redesigned model is definitely on the very best moving magnet cartridges available for under $200. It sounds extremely warm and its very forgiving of surface noise. It's the perfect upgrade to any older table and a perfect match for the Rega RP-1. The Bias 2 comes highly recommended for anyone in the market at this price. "[T]he Bias 2 is a very civilised performer with very good bass extension and 'kick', though that's never at the expense of insight...Midrange detail is very good...and stereo imaging is excellent." - Richard Black, Tech Radar The redesign includes Rega 's recent developments in coil winding techniques. These advances have allowed Rega to use their innovative parallel wound coil in the Bias 2 . This technique uses approximately one third less wire than previous models, thus producing a more efficient and reduced mass cartridge. You will hear the difference this makes in the tonality of the Bias 2.
