Ortofon 2m Black LVB 250 M/M Cartridge

The new Ortofon Exclusive 2M Black LVB 250 model

To commemorate the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven, Ortofon announce the release of the 2M Black LVB 250 Exclusive Model.

The 2M Black flagship from Ortofon is widely acknowledged as being one of the best MM cartridges on the market, but at Ortofon being the best doesn’t mean that we can’t get better.

Benefits of high-end materials

The 2M Black LVB 250 has been recreated from the concepts of its predecessor, the 2M Black, but the 2M Black LVB 250 performance takes one step further to enhance the cartridge’s capabilities and technical excellence.

The 2M Black LVB 250 uses a Nude Shibata diamond on a Boron cantilever, the combination known from the acclaimed MC Cadenza Black cartridge.

The Nude Shibata stylus’s 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. The use of an extremely stiff and lightweight Boron cantilever adds remarkable transparency, speed and responsiveness.

2M Series styli interchangeability:

The 2M Series' engines, coils and magnets configurations are not identical: Red and Blue are identical, so are the Bronze and Black and so are the true mono variants 2M Mono and 2M 78. Likewise, 2M series styli are interchangeable within the below combinations:

  • 2M Red, 2M Blue and 2M Silver
  • 2M Bronze, 2M Black and 2M Black LVB 250
  • 2M Mono and 2M 78
