    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    Industry standard entry level audiophile cartridge pre-mounted on SH-4 headshell. Features a moving magnet design. Tipped elliptical diamond stylus and split pole pins with a copper wire fits most turntables.


    About 2M Red Cartridge:

    2M are designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Our philosophy is to play the record sound as accurate as possible, without coloring the sound. We have optimized the design for ease of mounting the cartridge, weight and size to fit the most common turntables at the market today.
    The name 2M was selected among several ideas. We wanted a modern name that would be easy to pronounce and to remember, and therefore an alpha numerical name was chosen. 2M means MM, which is the abbreviation for moving magnet.


    Of course the 2M isn't just another pretty face. It has been engineered to the highest standards and is congruent with the unrelenting commitment of Ortofon to provide the most precise and accurate reproduction possible without coloration.


    The 2M series of cartridges feature Ortofon's trademark split pole pins, an invention that enables moving magnet cartridges to have a flat frequency response, as with a moving coil cartridge. Split pole pins were invented by Ortofon, and were originally presented in the 500 series and Super OM series.


    The 2M Red uses an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV.


    About SH-4 Headshell:

    The SH-4 headshell has an ergonomic design with a long finger that is easy to pick-up. The big finger grip and shorter construction makes movement and placement of the headshell easy and visible.


    The wire terminals on the rear side are also gold plated for better signal transmission.

    Rega EXACT Cartridge

    Design


    The Exact shares the same body moulding as the rest of the Rega cartridge range. This is a one piece body and has no energy sapping joints between the stylus mounting and headshell contact face. The headshell face is machined perfectly flat to ensure
    maximum contact between cartridge and headshell.


    Coil Winding


    Rega have designed and developed its own coil winding machine. This allows us to manufacture coils in a completely new and innovative way. This means approximately one third less wire is used than in our other cartridges, making the Exact even more
    efficient than the Elys.


    Cantilever


    The Exact has a highly expensive non removable cantilever, fitted with a "Vital" diamond tip. This tip fits into the record groove more precisely than the usual elliptical type, allowing more information to be gleaned from the records.


    Assembly


    Because of the design and extremely high tolerances of Rega cartridges, our assembly methods owe more to watch making than the assembly line. Every one is hand built, and the highly skilled operatives use little more than tweezers and microscopes. Each
    cartridge is then adjusted and tested twice over a 24 hour period. Such methods are expensive and time consuming but we feel the results are worth it. We hope you do too!

    Manual turntable with build in Pro-Ject Speed Box SE


    Pro-Ject's Xtension 12 incorporates over 20 years of experience in turntable design and manufacture. The Xtension 12 represents their latest technological efforts to address mass-decoupling and resonance reduction. Beginning with the mass-loaded magnetically floated sub-chassis and the precision balanced sandwich alloy platter (recycled vinyl/alloy), the foundation of this system weighs in at a super-heavy 55lbs. Additionally, Pro-Ject employs magnetic decoupling feet to thwart airborne or mechanical vibration from disturbing playback. This mass and isolation creates an environment of extremely low resonance allowing music to emerge from an ultra-silent black background. An AC motor with a two-step pulley drive with Electronic Speed Control maintains perfect pitch and rhythm resulting in inaudible wow, flutter and noise. There's even a built-in spirit level to assist setting the height-adjustable magnetic footers.


    Further reducing noise and vibration is the isolated Sorbothane mounting board for the 12 carbon-fiber tonearm. The conical arm and unified headshell are fabricated from a single piece of carbon fiber to avoid problems associated with standing wave reflections. Single screw fixing of the armtube allows for easy rotation for adjustment of needle azimuth. Additionally the arm is fully adjustable for VTA. A high-performance 123cm phono interconnect cable is included.


    Optional SuperPack includes Sumiko Blackbird Cartridge at a significantly reduced price.

    Clearaudio Universal Tonearm


    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    The carefully hand-assembled Universal is Clearaudio's finest pivoted tonearm. Its vertical and horizontal ball bearing assembly is precision-machined to ultra-high tolerances. The Universal features a three-piece carbon fiber arm tube, reducing resonances to a vanishing degree and delivering excellent performance with a wide range of phono cartridges. Its aluminum one-piece headshell allows for accurate azimuth adjustment, reduces mass, and increases rigidity. Additionally, fine adjustments for anti-skate and vertical tracking force (VTF) offers accurate alignment of any phono cartridge type.


    The Universal comes with easily interchangeable counterweights, allowing it to work with nearly any cartridge manufactured today. Its internal wiring is Clearaudio's best Six Stream cable, as found on their Statement TT-1 tonearm. This assures superior signal integrity, and is ideal for all high-quality cartridges, including low-output moving coils. The Universal uses the Clearaudio/Linn standard mount, making it compatible with all Clearaudio turntables and an ideal replacement tonearm for other brand turntables. It is available in 9-inch and 12-inch versions.

    Our Optimum Match (OM) cartridges match most tonearms perfectly. An OM cartridge from Ortofon makes it possible to upgrade the performance of an entire music system very easily by upgrading the stylus. We offer a wide range of replacement styli for OM cartridges.


    With the OM cartridge you instantly hear the improvement: music you've heard many times takes on new dimensions.


    The OM 1S is a magnetic cartridge (MM) with a Spherical shaped stylus that provides balanced and distortion-free playback for general purpose applications.


    If your tonearm has a standard headshell or a cartridge mount, then step up to optimal sound reproduction with OM's. A glance at anyone of these cartridges will reveal Ortofon's answer to perfect tonearm matching. Ingeniously tucked into the top of the mounting bracket is a tiny, removable weight-plate.


    If your tonearm is an standard tonearm, just leave the weight-plate.


    If your tonearm is one of the low mass types, then simply remove the weight. The mass of your OM cartridge is now a mere 2.5g

    Limited To 1,000 Pieces Worldwide


    A CONCORDE STORY began in 1979


    In 1979 the Concorde looked radically different to any cartridge that had been manufactured by Ortofon or any of its rivals up to then. However, the initial inspirations for its development were the search for a design of an integrated cartridge and headshell that could be easily mounted on a tone arm without the need for screws or the plugging in of wires.


    Award-winning industrial designer Jan TrÄgårdh conceived the Concorde's unique look and received the Danish Industrial Design Award in 1979 for his work on the low mass Concorde. Concorde has undergone continual re-modelling ever since as it has evolved from its original purpose as a domestic hi-fi pick up to its now revered status as a cartridge for club DJs. The Concorde performs well, is remarkably robust and, most importantly, resolutely stays in the groove.


    The arrival of the Concorde and its subsequent establishment as a very popular cartridge was the result of Ortofon's very strong focus on product development in the laboratories in Copenhagen, brilliant engineers led the department.


    Ortofon iconic cartridge


    Having celebrated many of previous anniversaries by launching innovative products, naturally, the approaching centennial year called for some grand designs and the relaunch of the cartridge that is emblematic of Ortofon's pioneering approach to design - the Concorde. With a tip of the hat to the Concorde's origins, Ortofon releases in a limited edition of 1,000 a Hi-Fi Concorde version THE CONCORDE CENTURY.


    THE CONCORDE CENTURY uses a silver-plated copper wire and a Nude Fine Line diamond stylus, which slim profile will track even the highest frequency information. Additionally, its larger footprint ensures reduced distortion and record wear. THE CONCORDE CENTURY has a full, relaxed and homogenous sound with space, depth and detail - a very good choice for any kind of music.

    The Quintet Black S is the best example of Quintet's overall excellence


    The Quintet Black S is graced with a Nude Shibata diamond, considered one of the best stylus profiles available, mounted on a high-performance Sapphire cantilever.


    The Shibata's slim, highly polished profile allows an exceedingly wide contact area to the walls of the groove and ensures detailed and pure reproduction thoughout the spectrum, including even the most high frequency groove information.


    Top-mounting of the Quintet cartridges is easy and secure using the screws supplied. The aluminuim frame has threaded mounting holes and is fitted easily with the 5mm or 7mm screws depending on the thickness of the headshell.


    The Quintet series' right angles, straight lines, stylus visibility and ample distance between the record surface and the cartridge's bottom will make it easy to mount and align the cartridge and tonearm correctly. The Quintet Series gives excellent results with most common tonearms.
