Product Info


The Ortofon 2M Blue Stylus features a nude elliptical diamond and is recommended for the Ortofon 2M Blue cartridge, to bring it back to its original specifications and performance.


Featuring the same technical specifications as the original 2M Blue, the 2m Blue 100 model has been released to promote stylus upgrades for existing Ortofon customers throughout the company’s centenary year. The reason behind the new stylus is purely to promote cartridge upgrade - for owners of budget to midrange turntables that are looking to take their first steps on the upgrade path, or are perhaps ready to change their Ortofon 2M Red or 2M Silver.

The 2M Blue Stylus may also be used to upgrade the Ortofon 2M Red cartridge to 2M Blue performance.
