"the first of the 2M Black LVB 250's many virtues: it recreates space, especially stage width more so than depth, with ample provision for forensic listening into the performance. You could almost separate the vocalists from each other, but the more impressive element was that, despite this wide-open view, one enjoyed coherence across the sound spectrum. The sound was 'of a whole' rather than comprising disparate elements"

"The latest variation on Ortofon's long-running 2M moving-magnet cartridge design pays tribute to Beethoven 250 years after his birth, complete with a picture of the composer on the side of its body. It fits the bill with a silky, sophisticated presentation especially well-suited to classical, jazz, and acoustic music. Refined and composed, it uses a version of the stylus and cantilever found in the company's Cadenza Black moving-coil cartridge. This, along with a new suspension, all contributes to a sound that boasts rock-solid imaging, great stereo focus, and depth along with a smooth, lush view of strings and other acoustic instruments."
