Ortofon 2M Stylus Silver
The 2M range of moving magnet cartridge have been an absolute revelation since their introduction. From the introductory 2M Red up to the flagship 2M Black, and later with dedicated 78 RPM and Mono versions, they have moved MM technology on to new levels.
Late 2013 has seen a new model added to the family, initially released as a special cartridge on certain Pro-Ject turntables (originally the Xpression Carbon). The 2M Silver takes all the characteristics of the most recognised 2M cartridge, the 2M Red, and adds silver spools to the cartridge body; resulting in a new level of sound performance.
By using silver spools in the generator system, the 2M Silver is capable of providing optimal signal generation - giving your records the best possible chance of sounding great.

Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
Can modern record players play 78rpm records?
Unless it explicitly states in the product specifications most turntables do not play 78rpm records. Some manufacturers offer modification kits but what is needed varies from model to model. Contact us with your turntable model number for personalised advice.
Why is my stylus listed under a different brand name to my system?
Most HiFi & turntable brands do not manufacture their own styli & buy them in from other specialised brands. Because of this is it not always possible to identify your stylus from the brand name of the turntable .
Can the stylus be replaced on all cartridges?
No. Styli can usually be replaced on Moving Magnet (MM) type cartridges but it is not possible to change the stylus on Moving Coil (MC) Cartridges
Can I fit an alternative cartridge if my stylus is no longer available?
In most cases your turntable will have a 1/2" headshell mount, this can be identified by two small bolts running through your headshell to the cartridge. This is by far the most common type of connection with most new cartridges conforming to this standard. Other not so common but replaceable connections are a bayonet fitting, where the cartridge plugs directly into your tonearm via a bayonet, & a P4 connection, where your cartidge plugs directly into your tonearm by four pins. Fittings that are not replaceable include slide connectors such as those used by Dual & single screw connections, as used on very old turntables.
