A top-MM at an affordable price. " Stereo Magazine
Audio Award from German HiFi magazine AUDIO - The readers of the AUDIO voted for the best Hifi products of the year. With votes coming in from across Germany, 2M Bronze won in the 2017 category phono cartridges. 

While the 2M Black sounds more immediately impressive, the 2M Bronze is the more satisfying over the long haul, halving the difference between the Black's speed and resolution and the Blue's balance. In fact... it is a mixture of all of these sonic virtues. It's fast, but not ostentatiously so; it turns information into music, and it does this because it is better balanced, neither leaning in one sonic direction or another. I would say that it represents not just the 2M line's sweet spot but also its musical core. .The Audio Beat
