Considered as “The Best Moving Magnet Cartridge Available”, the 2M Black is definitely the choice for the Audiophile. The 2M Black is considered in Hi-Fi circles as the upgrade from the Shure v-15 which for years held the “Blue Ribbon”. The 2M Black sports a Shibata Stylus which offers in-paralleled contact with the groove. A choice that should be considered with this cartridge is a good Vinyl Cleaner! 2M Black $799.
