The Ortofon 2M Blue has been praised by virtually every reviewer for its’ silky smooth yet detailed sound, tracking ability and quietness. Like the 2M Red, the mount platform is quite wide, making for a solid mount to any headshell. The 2M Blue Features a Nude Elliptical Stylus, offering more detail than the 2M Red. As the bodies are the same, you can “upgrade” a 2M Red by simply adding a 2M Blue Stylus. $299. including tax.
