2M Red PNP
The 2M PNP series comes premounted and aligned
for a variety of SME-style tonearms with a removable headshell and
4-pin bayonet connector. The total weight of the 2M cartridge with PNP
headshell is 23g.
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. We have
optimized the design for ease of mounting the cartridge, weight and size
to fit the most common turntables at the market today.
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.
Of course the 2M isn’t just another pretty face. It has been
engineered to the highest standards and is congruent with the
unrelenting commitment of Ortofon to provide the most precise and
accurate reproduction possible without coloration.
The 2M series of cartridges feature 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. Split pole
pins were invented by Ortofon, and were originally presented in the 500
series and Super OM series.
The 2M Red uses an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV.
2M Red features a tipped elliptical diamond.
