Product Description

The name 2M was selected among several ideas. We wanted a modern name that would be easy to pronounce and to remember, and therefore an alpha numerical name was chosen. 2M means MM, which is the abbreviation for moving magnet.
The 2M series of cartridges feature Ortofon’s trademark split pole pins, an invention which enables moving magnet cartridges to have a flat frequency response, as with a moving coil cartridge. Split pole pins were invented by Ortofon, and were originally presented in the 500 series and Super OM series.
We have optimized the design of 2M series for ease of mounting the cartridge, weight and size to fit the most common turntables at the market today. 2M Series provides excellent compatibility in an assortment of playback systems and with a wide variety of phono preamps..

  1. Big improvement over starter cartridges 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jan 2014

    I purchased a 2M Blue cartridge as an upgrade to my Audio Technica on a Rega P2 turntable. I wanted to hear more detail and a more involving sound from my vinyl. After reading many positive reviews, I took the plunge and I'm glad I did. The music I hear now is more involving and has a life-like quality, especially with high-quality recordings/ pressings. With some material, it may tend to be slightly bright, but not so that it becomes tiresome.
    The 2M Blue is a good option as an upgrade from a starter cartridge.
