The 2M series were developed in conjunction with Danish 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.
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 modernname which should 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 Ortofon’s unrelenting commitment to providing the most precise and accurate
reproduction possible without coloration.
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.
