2M Red MM Cartridge

The Ortofon 2M Red is a benchmark cartridge at $100. It installs very easily so a good choice for first time cartridge installation DIY. It also tends to do well on vintage tables due to it's very forgiving Elliptical diamond profile.  We often put these on older Thorens and Technics turntables where someone wants a pretty good cartridge that's a few notches better than an entry-level. 

Note that when installing, you can only see a small part of the stylus, so use good magnification and try to use a beam style protractor.
