Lab Overview

 #TTLcomponent: 💎Highly Recommended

  • 👉 most popular entry-level audiophile listening cartridge at an excellent price point
  • balanced sound, sturdy cantilever design, easy mounting
  • 🔎 when you're ready to upgrade, you can swap the 2M Red stylus with the 2M Blue stylus
  • note: on the outside the 2M cartridge bodies are identical across the line, but if you're looking to go from Red/Blue stylus -> Bronze/Black stylus, that's a no-go. only the Bronze should be upgraded to the Black stylus due to mechanical upgrades within the Bronze + Black cartridge bodies (the quad coils are different: Red/Blue are Copper & Bronze/Black are Silver-Plated)


  • industry standard entry-level audiophile cartridge, Lab recommended
  • tipped Elliptical Diamond stylusaluminum cantilever & moving magnet (mm) design ensure a balanced, clean output
  • easy mounting, design fits most turntables

  • NEW 2MR cartridge for Rega turntables also available
