Ortofon 2M Black LVB 250 Special Edition Moving Magnet Cartridge

To commemorate the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven, this exclusive model improves on the 2M Black 

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’ 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.

A new rubber compound for the suspension system has been developed, for optimal balance between compliance and damping. The new rubber compound formula is based on the Multi Wall Carbon Nano Tubes (MWCNT) highly efficient nano filler.
