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.

The 2M Red is designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. The Ortofon philosophy is to play the record sound as accurate as possible, without colouring 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 2M Red provides excellent compatibility in an assortment of playback systems and with a wide variety of phono preamps.
