Has anyone upgraded to the 2M Blue Stylus on their Ortofon 2M red cartridge?
thanks although from what i understand the blue stylus will be a significant upgrade as the present stylus limits what this cartridge is capable of. and for lazy me a plug & play upgrade.I am sure they have. However it might be better in the long run to replace the cartridge entirely.
The replacement of the stylus takes your cartridge up a level but, ultimately, that's as far as you can go.
It will be that but as far as you can go with that cartridge.thanks although from what i understand the blue stylus will be a significant upgrade as the present stylus limits what this cartridge is capable of. and for lazy me a plug & play upgrade.
Because the Bronze and Black share an upgraded cartridge, mounting these on a Red/Blue cart you will only achieve about 80% of their potential, but that is far more than the upgrade from Red to Blue will ever give you. It's a cheapskate upgrade that no dealer or Ortofon would ever agree with... not recommended, or words to that effect.that's something to think about, wonder why no one recommends it? must a reason.
The cart internals may be different but the bodies are identical so the stylus fitment is common to both bodies. I do speak from experience as I've owned the entire range of 2M carts and bodies.
