All 2M cartridges’ styli can be interchanged with replacement styli from the rest of the series, but the 2M Bronze and Black have a superior cartridge body, when compared to the 2M Red and Blue. You will therefore not get the full performance of a 2M Black by placing a 2M Black Stylus on a 2M Red body – though the sound will be vastly improved. Similarly, a 2M Red Stylus will be a notable downgrade to a 2M Bronze or Black cartridge.
The 2M Red is the ultimate introductory hi-fi cartridge. Combining affordability and superior sound, it is a must-try for any audiophile on a budget.
