CONCLUSION

The Ortofon 2M Black has to be one of the best moving magnet cartridges currently available, as well as one of the most practical, due to its high output, normal tracking force and weight. This is a masterful design for anyone keen to get the best from LP, without moving up to the complexities, cost and delicacy of moving coils - especially when your turntable plinth is seen as a convenient DVD shelf by another member of the family! The Bronze has a bright balance and is less sophisticated.

 

verdict four globes

ORTOFON 2M BRONZE £200

Highly detailed and insightful, but lacking warmth and body. Clean but not powerful bass; more analytical than engaging.

FOR

- ease of fitting

- good tracking

- extremely revealing

AGAINST

- lacks warmth or body
