excellente cellule
Jankoun, 15.11.2020
Utilisation

J'ai achetée cette cellule pour équiper une platine d'époque, la Marantz TT4200. Dans mon système, elle se combien à un ampli, également des années 80, le Technics SU-C03, ainsi qu'à des enceintes type colonne, les Focal Chorus 615.

Le son :

La qualité de restitution de la 2M Re est étonnante, la réponse est précise et dotée d'une grande sensibilité. Que ce soit au casque ou directement sur enceintes, on ne peut que constater la qualité sonore.

La fabrication :

L'ensemble étant pré-monté, il est facile de faire l'installation. Il y a également un petit cache en plastique, clipsable, pour protéger le diamant. C'est pratique mais pas toujours évident à utiliser : il m'est arrivé une fois de toucher le diamant en voulant le protéger. Il faut donc être précautionneux, comme toujours avec le matériel hifi.

Conclusion :

La cellule Ortofon 2M Red représente un petit investissement mais bon rapport qualité prix, avec une excellent qualité sonore. De plus elle présente une esthétique sympathique, entre moderne et vintage.

Passt nicht auf alte Dual Plattenspieler
ThomasG 668, 13.05.2020
Das System ist bestimmt nicht schlecht, daher vergebe ich auch die volle Sternezahl. Es passt leider nicht in die Headshells (TK...) der alten Dual Plattenspieler (Hier ein 1228), da es zu breit baut. Greift also besser zum u anderen Systemen wie z.B. Ortofon OM 10 oder AT-VM95, wenn ihr einen alten Dual neu benadeln wollt.

Bonne qualité pour le prix.
Emmanuel9533, 30.03.2021
Cela faisait longtemps que j'avais envie de la tester, tant on en disait du bien. J'étais déjà heureux avec les OM10, du même fabriquant. Du coup, j'ai dû changer de platine, passer à un Pro-Ject. Déjà avec la Pro-Ject et son OM5e le rendu était plus ample et plus consistant qu'avec ma vielle Dual et son équivalente OM10, mais avec la 2M, ce sont les détails et une certaine finesse qui montent au créneau.

Dans les points faibles, il y a cette sibilance plus prononcée et le fait que la cellule est très lourde. J'avais peur qu'elle se montre plus capricieuse avec les disques voilés, mais non elle les suit bien sans sauter. Ce qui m'a surpris.

Donc, comparé à la série OM, c'est plus ouvert, plus détaillé et un grave moins brillant (en étant toujours présent). Une très bonne entrée de gamme qui aurait été excellent si elle était meilleur sur les sibilantes.
