Ortofon 2M 78 RPM Moving Magnet Cartridge

The 2M Series is developed with the Danish Industrial designer Møller Jensen Design – the same designer behind 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 2M 78 is a true mono cartridge designed specifically for 78 RPM records. An improved engine provides a high level of sonic accuracy. The spherical diamond is perfect for playback of 78 rpm shellac records, which require a larger stylus profile. 

The 2M 78 uses a strapped output to deliver the same output signal from both sets of pole pins. This effectively eliminates the need for mono-specific equipment, making it possible to enjoy true mono reproduction on any stereo playback system.
