It’s here! Ortofon 2M Black in the house!

2013-12-31 12.49.53 (Custom)It’s finally here–the Ortofon 2M Black has arrived, and it is mounted up and ready to go.  At this moment, I’m breaking it in and want to give it a bit of a chance to loosen up before doing any critical listening.  Once that is set, I’ll return with a full report on how it is performing.  At first peek: impressive!

I did hit a slight snag in setting it up, and may go back and revisit the setup to make certain I have it set up exactly where I need it to be, but it seems as though it is dialed in quite well.

I will post about the installation in a forthcoming post, along with listening impressions in a second follow-up.
