2M are designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record
groove. Our philosophy is to play the record sound as accurate as possible, without
coloring the sound.
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.
The 2M Blue uses an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV.
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
