2M 78 Verso
The 2M 78 Verso is identical to the standard 2M 78, but is designed to be used on turntables whose mounting scheme requires the cartridge be affixed from underneath the headshell.
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 isnât 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 Ortofonâs 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 78 features a 65um diamond for playback of 78rpm records, and a true-mono engine.
