In Reply to: RE: Ortofon 2M Black to replace Grado Platinum Reference ? posted by suretyguy on August 10, 2017 at 05:04:56
Sorry! I didn't mean to upset you. This is a public forum and I was just providing truthful information to those interested in Ortofon 2M cartridges. Personally, I could care less. I'm into moving coils exclusively at the moment. Furthermore, if I were interested in MM cartridges, I'd probably start with the new line of Audio Technica MM cartridges.
Perhaps your dealer friends were telling the truth regarding their experiences and perhaps the 2M Bronze sounded better in their particular vinyl front-ends. After all, 60 people voted for the Bronze as the best sounding cartridge in Fremer's listening test. It's just that 84 people voted for the Black. Go figure!
My earlier post apparently was deleted, I suppose because it could have been construed as politically provocative , so I'm going to try this again.
"I was just providing 'truthful' information to those interested in Ortofon 2M cartridges."
"Perhaps your dealer friends were telling the "truth" regarding their experiences..."
"Truth" is a difficult concept to establish in an area as prone to subjectivism as the audiophile world. To paraphrase, one man's truth is another man's poison.

It depends on what you're talking about.
When I said that I was just providing truthful information, I was referring to the fact that I was truthfully reporting the results of Fremer's listening test, which had been previously published by Fremer. There should be no question about my use of the word "truthfully" in this scenario. Furthermore, there is no subjectivism involved in my objective statement. ;-)
I was not stating that one cartridge was better than another like your dealer friends. I was simply reporting the factual voting results from a listening test conducted by Michael Fremer.
