Sounds appealing.  This coming from a Grado Sonata guy.

 

Mmmm.

I've been considering the 2M Black for a while, how would you describe its sound?

Yes please, I've been using a HOMC (Benz Silver) and would like to try a MM.

Not unllke a Type V.  Has that "aliveness" that MC's have trouble with.  I run mine at about 1.58 and it has tracked everything effortlessly.  For me, it was a wake up call.

 

I've rediscovered those Sony/Columbia classical half speed masters and there's plenty of soundstage and it can do sub-bass when it's there.

 

I know you'd like me to be more specific but that's the best I can do.  Sorry.

Not a problem. I wish I could just buy them all beerchug.gif

That was good.

 

Tempting even.

Very tempting.

 

I think I'll have to restrain myself back down the Ortofon line to a Red or Blue...

Same experience here. Different cartridges (but one, if we do not consider next to inexcapable V15 ) , but perfectly understand where you are coming from. 

 

For anyone that has been on exclusively MC diet for a considerable time; try a good MM - it might turn out it was what you were craving for all the time...

I tend to agree. Although it might be interesting to hear Bronze vs Black - it is considerable price difference for what may be rather small difference in sound. Never did hear either. Remember - this is supposed to be mounted on Rega which does not allow for precise VTA, and Shibata stylus on Black is less tolerant of VTA errors than Fine Line on Bronze.

That said, however, the 2M series was actually designed with the Rega arms taken into consideration. Notice how the shape of the cartridge matches the headshell almost exactly when aligned properly wink.gif. Compliance-wise, also a very close match.
