Ortofon 2M Black PNP Mk II Moving Magnet Cartridge
The 2M Series is developed in conjunction with the Danish Industrial designer Møller Jensen Design – the 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 series of cartridges features Ortofon’s trademark split pole pins, an invention that enables moving magnet cartridges to have a flat frequency response, as with a moving coil cartridge.
The Plug-and Play MkII variant comes with a headshell that is a practical and elegant solution for customers who wish direct and easy mounting and replacement on their S-shaped tonearm.
2M Black is the best of everything, true to the groove with high resolution, and accurate insight into each recording.
