Customer Reviews for Ortofon Stylus 2M Mono Replacement Stylus (Mono)
Ortofon 2M mono cartridge seemed like a good compromise between value and performance, at least from what I have read on line and from Ortofon rep. And that is what I needed for my limited mono collection (60+ LPs). Let’s get to the point.
Tracking: it’s very similar to my Ortofon 2M Bronze in that regard.
Easy to setup and very forgiving of less then optimal setup.
Inner grove noise: since it’s purpose is optimized for mono playback, I feel like there is a huge advantage of mono dedicated cartridge over fooling around with conversion wires/splitters and stereo cartridges.
Sound: Can’t really say how it compares to other mono cartridges but it is good enough for my needs. It can be blend on poorly mastered recordings and fabulous on well engendered records such as Jefferson Airplane/Surrealistic Pillow or The Beach Boys/Pet Sounds.
Price: ???? Can’t say, as I have no means of comparison to other cartridges in various price point.
