The Ortofon 2M Series was developed together with the Danish designer "Møller Jensen Design" fromCopenhagen, Denmark - the same designer who designed the award winning Jubilee and the Kontrapunkt Moving Coil seriesof cartridges.

The 2M series of Moving Magnet cartridges are engineered for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in therecord groove.

The Ortofon philosophy is to play the recorded sound as accurately as possible, without colouration of the sound.

They have optimised the design for ease of mounting the cartridge to the headshell with weight and size to fit the most common turntables on the market today.

Of course the 2M isn't just another pretty face.

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 Red Series features:

  • an improved engine, which provides an increased outputof 5.5mV
  • a tipped Elliptical diamond and split pole pins with acopper wire


What Hi-Fi Choice had to say

May 2011

"...Ortofon cartridges are veryinformative...well extended at both frequency extremes...this one seems to fit the pattern...

...The treble is notably clean and tidy, full of life without ever becoming strident or harsh...

...Bass is assured...Tracking very confident..."
