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.
