The Ortofon 2M Silver phono cartridge is an OEM-model, that takes most of the characteristics of the 2M Red cartridge. The 2M Silver’s special feature is silver plated copper coils, the same coil wire material as in the 2M Bronze and 2M Black models, with a reduced number of windings.

2M Silver will be an upgrade compared to 2M Red due to a special rubber suspension and silver plated copper wire material.
