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.
