The 2M Red is an all-purpose cartridge that delivers open, dynamic sound with a slight touch of warmth!
The Ortofon 2M Red MM Cartridge features an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV and an optimized sound reproduction and a high level of sonic accuracy & a tipped Elliptical diamond and split pole pins with a copper wire. The 2M Red is an all-purpose cartridge that delivers open, dynamic sound with a slight touch of warmth!
The 2M Series is designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove:
The 2M Series is developed in conjunction with the Danish Industrial designer Møller Jensen Design – the same designer who designed 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.
