"...the Anniversary stylus doesnt go quite as far as rewriting the rules of vinyl playback, but it does mean that you can upgrade any 2M Red one of the most commonly encountered pre-fitted cartridges going for a very competitive price, and that can only be seen as a good thing." - HiFi Choice, March 2018
2M styli interchangeability - IMPORTANT!
Physically 2M styli will fit on alternative 2M cartridges bodies, BUT 2M Series cartridges engines, coils and magnets configurations are not quite identical: Red and Blue ARE identical, Bronze and Black ARE identical, and 2M Mono and 2M 78 ARE identical.
2M Silver phono cartridge is an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) model that takes most of the characteristics of the 2M Red. 2M Silver's special feature is silver plated copper coils, the same coil wire material as in the 2M Bronze and Black models, with a reduced number of windings.
2M series styli are interchangeable within the below combinations:
2M Red, 2M Blue and 2M Silver
2M Bronze and 2M Black
2M Mono and 2M 78
Special for 2M Red, 2M Blue and 2M Silver phono cartridges:
2M Silver will be an upgrade compared to 2M Red due to a special suspension and silver plated copper wire material.
2M Blue is an upgrade compared to both 2M Red and 2M Silver thanks to Nude Elliptical diamond which retrieves information from the groove with a higher accuracy.
