ORTOFON 2M BLUE MOVING MAGNET CARTRIDGE by Ortofon
I purchased this cartridge as I heard it demo'd, and it sounded very revealing and detailed, very nice soundstage with good seperation of instruments and great vocals, on an inferior T/T and arm to mine.

Initially I was quite disappointed, as it was edgy, harsh and thin. I actually thought it could be faulty (had a rega Elys II faulty) and rang the dealer, he said to wait and give it a few hours and run at the full weight of 1.8 grams, I was tracking at 1.7g.

Rega Fono MM MK2 Phono Stage Black by Rega
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for price, 5 Mar 2014
I purchased this nearly a year ago, and it replaced a Graham Slee gram-amp, which I found thin, this was cheaper and in my opinion much nicer, with a fuller sound and very nice placement and soundstage.

I use it with an Inspire Apollo full Acrylic T/Table, Audiomods arm and Ortofon 2M blue cartridge, and on my Cyrus 200 Watt monoblocks sounds ace through Kef R500's.

Highly recommended, and a bargain at the price.

When the R series came out I went and had a listen, and they were brilliant, so I bought a pair of R500 Floor-standers, (for lounge) and have since bought a pair of Q300's for my son and now I've bought these LS50 anniversary editions for my study, replacing the M/A GX100's.

Kef are on a massive roll and are "flavour of the month" at the moment, but they are very deservedly so, having made a series of speakers that are truly… Read more
