Ortofon 2MR Black LVB 250 - Limited Edition

Designed for playing 78 rpm shellac records & perfectly suited to Rega turntables

The 2MR Black LVB 250 upgrades the great build of the 2M Black with a boron cantilever and our very own Nano Tube suspension system. The result is a sound so precise and so detailed that you feel like you have let the artist into your house and have them playing right in your living room.

The Ortofon 2MR features a specially designed cartridge housing tailored for turntables and tonearms like Rega, matching their requirement for low-form factor cartridges.

Accuracy level

The 2M Black is an amazing cartridge and, by many, considered the ultimate in moving magnet. So, why would Ortofon attempt to create something even better? Because perfection runs in their blood!

The 2MR Black LVB 250 upgrades the great build of the 2M Black, and the result is a sound so precise and so detailed that you feel like you have let the artist into your house and have them playing right in your living room.

Stylus

The 2M Black LVB 250 upgrades the great build of the 2M Black with a Nude Shibata diamond on a boron cantilever. The use of an extremely stiff and lightweight Boron cantilever adds remarkable transparency, speed, and responsiveness.

The Nude Shibata stylus’ slim, highly polished profile allows an exceedingly wide contact area to the groove walls and ensures notably detailed reproduction throughout the spectrum, including even the highest frequencies.
