* THE 2M RED CARTRIDGE IS OUR RECOMMENDED CARTRIDGE UPGRADE TO GET AN AUDIOPHILE SOUND OUT OF OLD AND NEW PLAYERS* 

 

The 2M Series is developed in conjunction with the Danish Industrial Deisgner MollerJensen Design – the same designer who designed the award winning MC Jubilee and Kontrapunkt series. Inspired by the facets of a diamond, whose contours gracefully trace the grooves on a record’s surface, the 2M’s handsome elegance establishes a great combination of form and functionality.

The name 2M was selected from among several ideas. We wanted a modern name that would be easy to pronounce and remember, and therefore an alphanumerical name was chosen. 2M means MM, which is the abbreviation for moving magnet.

Of course the 2M isn’t just another pretty face. It has been engineered to the highest standards and is congruent with Ortofon’s unrelenting commitment to providing the most precise and accurate reproduction possible without coloration.

The 2M Red uses an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV.

2M red features a tipped elliptical diamond which goes deeper into the record groove to extract those musical detail nuances that make the performance special. Due to the increased surface contact of the record groove record wear is also minimised.

2M Series styli interchangeability:
The 2M Series' engines, coils and magnets configurations are not identical: Red and Blue are identical, so are the Bronze and Black and so are the true mono variants 2M Mono and 2M 78. Likewise, 2M series styli are interchangeable within the below combinations: 
- 2M Red, 2M Blue and 2M Silver
- 2M Bronze and 2M Black
- 2M Mono and 2M 78
