Ortofon 2M Bronze, What Hi-Fi?, Online Review

What Hi-Fi

:
"If fancy styling is your thing, then this Ortofon may be the cartridge for you."
"More than with most cartridges we've tested, we found that the sound from the 2M Bronze really gained cohesion and warmth following bedding-in." "Tonally it's highly neutral, with treble, midrange and bass being neatly balanced.

The treble is especially crisp, and you get a very detailed sound as a result."

 

Imaging and staging take the 2M Bronze to another level, commensurate with its price. Images have excellent three-dimensionality and solidity and the stage now holds far greater interest, with more separate instruments to “see” upon the stage. Dynamics surpassed those of the less pricey cartridges as you might expect. Michael Fremer Stereophile
