Ortofon 2M Mono 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.
An improved engine provides a high level of sonic accuracy. The R18 µm nude spherical diamond is an optimal solution for playing mono microgroove LP vinyl records. The 2M Mono 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.
