    In a nutshell then, the new Ortofon 2M Blue and Red moving magnet cartridges offer a thoroughly modern sound that suits today's albums. Both are highly revealing and an engaging listen that is nothing other than very impressive at the price.

    - Hifi World Review


    2M are designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Our philosophy is to play the record sound as accurate as possible, without coloring the sound. We have optimized the design for ease of mounting the cartridge, weight and size to fit the most common turntables at the market today.


    The name 2M was selected among several ideas. We wanted a modern name that would be easy to pronounce and to remember, and therefore an alpha numerical name was chosen. 2M means MM, which is the abbreviation for moving magnet.


    Of course the 2M isn't just another pretty face. It has been engineered to the highest standards and is congruent with the unrelenting commitment of Ortofon to provide the most precise and accurate reproduction possible without coloration.


    The 2M series of cartridges feature Ortofon's trademark split pole pins, an invention that enables moving magnet cartridges to have a flat frequency response, as with a moving coil cartridge. Split pole pins were invented by Ortofon, and were originally presented in the 500 series and Super OM series.


    The 2M Blue uses an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV.


    2M Blue features a Nude elliptical diamond.

    Ultra High quality laminations, lower inductance and superior sound. These transformers were especially designed and tested with several low-output moving coil cartridges. These are very difficult transformers to construct and require a precision manufacturing process that can only be done by David Geren at CineMag.


    Includes premium construction with C&K Brand Silver contact toggle switches, and Deluxe Gold Plated RCA jacks.


    These specially designed transformers are wired to connect a moving coil cartridge (on a turntable) to a phono preamplifier, phono input of a receiver, or your preamp's phono input.


    Switchable for 1:20 (26 dB gain) or 1:40 (32 dB gain).


    Into a standard 47k phono preamp, the effective input impedance of the low gain (1:20 ratio) is 118 ohms. At 1:40, the effective input impedance is 29 ohms.


    The 1:40 ratio is perfect for those extremely low output cartridges including some by Audio Notes and Ortofon SPU.

    VPI Scout Jr Turntable Package - Ortofon 2M Blue & Cable



    Ready To Use Out Of The Box!


    The VPI Scout Jr. is a ready to use out of the box high-end entry level turntable. Complete with a pre-mounted Ortofon 2M Red cartridge on a 9 inch Gimballed/Yoke bearing, it is the perfect solution to enjoying your music! The Scout Jr. turntable is a precision instrument thoroughly tested.


    About The Ortofon Cable:

    High Purity (6N) Copper Cable, RCA-to-RCA

    The low signals from the cartridge are very sensitive to electromagnetic induced noise from the outside world. Things like mobile phones and home appliances challenge the tonearm cable. With this focus, Ortofon engineers have made a cable comprised of 7 cores 5N/6N OFC with a tight shield surrounding the cores for optimum shielding against electrical radiated noise. The 6NX TSW-1010 R (RCA to RCA) is the ideal solution for connecting the MC Transformer and Phono pre-amplifier.

    Replacing the multi award winning and five times What Hi-Fi? Product of the Year (RP3) was never going to be an easy task. It took a team of designers headed up by Rega's Roy Gandy, two years to develop the all new 'Planar 3' following the biggest re-design of the iconic 'three' model ever seen.


    The Rega team has worked tirelessly to improve every aspect of this turntable offering improved ergonomics, usability and first and foremost, sonic performance.The new 'Planar 3' is truly a new turntable for 2016 carrying over just two components from the previous model.


    New features of the Planar Three:


    RB330 tonearm - Designed using the latest 3D CAD & CAM technology, the new RB330 is the culmination of more than 35 years of tonearm design experience. Featuring a brand new bearing housing, and our latest tonearm tube designed using intelligent redistribution of mass ensure this arm will exhibit fewer points of possible resonance. Extreme stability with almost friction free movement from the new high precision bearing assemblies guarantees to gather more information from your vinyl than ever before.


    • Featuring a new bias assembly, re-designed stiffer vertical bearing housing, integrated
      arm clip and an improved spring housing with easier to read numbers.
    • Rega made, new low capacitance phono cable with Neutrik plugs,
    • Improved lower friction, precision horizontal and vertical bearings
    • New design 100g mild steel balance weight.


    Plinth - High gloss acrylic, laminated plinth, stiffer and vastly improved appearance, ergonomically positioned power switch.Two plinth finishes at launch: gloss black & gloss white


    Double braces - Improved thicker 3mm phenolic bottom brace and new metalised skin phenolic top brace.


    Bearing housing - Re-designed brass main hub central bearing, improved fit and construction reducing stress on the bearing itself.


    Sub platter - Re-designed sub platter, improved accuracy and improved stiffness.


    Platter - New float glass 'Optiwhite' polished rim 12mm - Improved accuracy in manufacture and stunning looks.


    Re-designed foot - New improved foot to increase stability and reduce vibration transfer.


    24V motor - Improved new motor control PCB with integration for the addition of TT-PSU for electronic speed change and improved advanced anti-vibration circuit (sold separately).


    Motor cover tray with integrated cooling.


    DB Technology (Double Brace Technology)

    Mass absorbs energy - lost energy equals lost music!


    Rega has pioneered the use of lightweight rigid plinths. Clever use of lightweight particulate core with a highly rigid phenolic resin skin became the foundations of the high level of performance achieved by the now iconic original Planar range.


    The new Planar 3 takes this design philosophy to the next level. A lightweight acrylic laminated plinth strengthened using a new improved double brace system mounted specifically where the increased rigidity is required (between the tonearm mounting and the main hub bearing) which forms a structurally sound stressed beam assembly. This rigid plinth design prevents energy absorption and unwanted resonance, which will add unnatural distortions to the music.


    Equally, heavier mass can transfer more unwanted energy, such as motor or bearing noise directly into the rotating record. The use of braces instead of the complete skin allows double thickness phenolic resin in these key areas while providing further weight reduction to the plinth which directly addresses the issue of mass absorption and unwanted energy transmission.


    Hand assembled RB330 tonearm.

    24v low noise motor / 12mm float glass platter.

    Lightweight double braced plinth.

    Precision main bearing.

    Factory fitted Elys2 MM cartridge or mounted with Ortofon 2m Blue cartridge (optional).

    Compatible with the TT-PSU electronic speed change and power supply box (optional).

    SB Upgrade Option: includes a record clamp, leather mat, electronic speed control and a Sumiko Blue Point No.2 cartridge


    The Classic combines the best of modern technical design with a timeless aesthetic that hearkens back to turntables of years past.


    Unlike other throw-back designs that rely solely on clichÉ "retro cool" styling to sell, The Classic is also a technical tour de force. Featuring a new 9" carbon fiber and aluminum composite tonearm, a completely new sub-chassis design, and a set of sophisticated isolation feet, The Classic offers a level performance the distantly-related turntables of analog's golden age could only dream of.


    Don't just take our word for it, though - EISA (the European Imaging and Sound Association) has already bestowed The Classic with their prestigious "Best Turntable Award" for 2017.


    The Classic arrives this month in three beautiful matte wood finishes: walnut, rosenut (walnut with a tasteful red tint), and eucalyptus. Turntable includes a hinged acrylic dustcover and an Ortofon 2M Silver moving magnet cartridge.
