SOLD! Ortofon 2M Silver

Recommended Posts

Just got a new turntable and dislike the sound of the elliptical cartridge on it. It has one side of one album played on it and I'm going to take it off and wrap it after I post this.

 

Paypal me a reasonable price like say $100.00 and I'll ship it out to you.

 

It came installed on the 9" medium weight tonearm of a Pro-Ject Classic tt. It does have the plastic shield to protect the stylus, but I am capable of using that tissue wrapping paper and maybe bubble wrap to protect it well enough to ship.

 

First link is the details of this stylus at Ortofon. Second is the cart at pro-ject's site.Third is Ortofon 2M search at amazon for comparable pricing info.

Paypal me a reasonable price like say $100 + shipping UPS or Fedex to recoup some funds for that mc I just bought and I'll ship it out to you.

 

Now it came installed on the 9" medium weight tonearm of a Pro-Ject Classic tt. It does have the plastic shield to protect the stylus, but I am capable of using that tissue wrapping paper and maybe bubble wrap to protect it well enough to ship.

Thanks Mike, my space shuttle engineer roommate and I threw it together... 150 lbs solid red oak in the garage in Rockledge, FL in 2001. 

Daylight at midnight with a Saturn IV or especially a V going up!

That cartridge can be upgraded with either a 2M Red stylus (~$90) or a 2M Blue (~200). I've listened to both and I can tell you that the Blue is a significant upgrade in overall detail.

 

Good luck with your sale.

Thanks @teknoid that could help!

The Silver is stated to BE an upgrade over the red, because of the magnets windings. Heck it was played for less than 15 minutes... it's a long way from broken in. Maybe the blue stylus would benefit the guts of this since silver is supposed to be an improvement over copper for transmitting sound.

It's got detail and the frequency response. Just didn't impress, the stock cartridge on my last tt was the same way.

This cart is not damaged in any way, shape or form folks.

Think I might just be a micro-line guy, not an elliptical one!

It's packaged up in the box, still just side two of 461 Ocean Blvd played on it!

Needs a tt to be on.

I just upgraded my 2m red to a blue and I agree, it is clear step up.

@jfjacques

Be sure that you don't "upgrade the stylus to a 2m Red" .

 

That would be a downgrade.

 

I'm pretty sure that you did take the time to investigate the 2m Silver before you contacted meB)!

Thanks - yes I understand upgrade path on this would be the blue - no budget for that at the moment but it could be a future purchase for sure.
