Ortofon 2M Blue Stylus 100 Special Anniversary Edition £95 @ AudioVisual Online (Plus TCB and free Next Day Del.)

Found 28th Mar
Following on from my Sony turntable deal I posted earlier here is another "vinyl" deal for an item I have just invested in.

I currently have a Ortofon 2M Red cartridge on my own turntable, the 2M Blue stylus is an upgrade to both the Red and then the Silver stylus. It just so happens Ortofon are celebrating 100 years by offering the blue stylus at considerably less than it normally costs (around £130).

This Special edition is exactly the same as the standard Blue stylus except it has an extra 100 graphic on the underside (look sideways).
WARNING - this is just the stylus and not the black stylus body that attaches to the head shell and then to the tone arm. I'm not sure if you can buy the bodies on their own so this is very much an existing stylus upgrade rather than complete replacement of a non-2M cartridge. There is more info here - ortofon.com/sty…384

Being the 100th year they are charging £100. NOTE: I have read that from 1st April the price will increase to £110 for the 2M Blue and I assume will remain at this price until the end of the year before reverting back to the standard price (roughly £130).

To get the price of £95 I registered an account first then added the stylus to my basket, I noticed I'd been given a £5 credit referred to as "AV - £5 Off Benefit" presumably as a new customer but I'm not sure. The postal service is free next working day delivery for orders over £50 with DPD and I've already had my confirmation. I was also able to get TCB tracked at 3.15% so that should bring the overall price nearer to £90... an excellent price for the 2M Blue....

As an aside my wife wasn't too impressed by the price for what is a small lump of plastic but she was a little happier (not much) when I told her it contained a full "nude" diamond. I've been threatened though... no more vinyl buying for a month!

Mmm looks like bronze is only interchangeable with Black... Never mind. Still a great find Op. Voted hot.
I miss my MC20 Super; I am badly underemployed these days, so cannot afford the £500 to get it re-tipped.
Tempted but must say no! Great price though

Not true... the red and blue share the same body, the bronze and black share a better body, but all work together, you can run a blue stylus on a bronze/black body, just won’t be as good. I ran a bronze before going mc and it’s a great cart!
Don't think I can use on my Sony 500, alas
