More Information


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.

Ortofon have optimized the design of 2M series for ease of mounting the cartridge, weight and size to fit the most common turntables at the market today. 2M Series provides excellent compatibility in an assortment of playback systems and with a wide variety of phono preamps.

  • Tick an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV

A very good clean sounding cartridge. I have upgraded from the 2M Red and the difference from the first track is noticeable. Vocals are cleaned up and high frequencies are very clear which can be heard with drums and cymbals. Whatever condition record I've tried has been produced very well

Excellent sound, no sibilance, pops or ticks. A little bright but that is probably due to newness, after running in it will sound warmer.

Got this 2M Blue after getting tired with the clinical presentation of my AT440mlb. The 2M is alot more involving, although its difficult to get used to, as I know there is detail that this cartridge doesnt dig up. Catch 22.
