HI-FI WORLD Review April 2013

"Sensational schellac!-Well thought out MONO, standard groove version of respected 2M Series of cartridges"

The Ortofon 2M 78 stylus is designed to deliver optimum sound performance from older 78 RPM records. Its use of an improved engine, provides a higher level of sonic accuracy which is so important when listening to any masterpiece on vinyl  .The 2M 78 features a Spherical diamond that is perfect for playback of 78 rpm records, which require a larger stylus profile.  The 2M headshell is a practical and elegant solution for our customers who wish direct and easy mounting and replacement on their tonearm. The combination of 2M Headshell and 2M Series cartridge adds unique distinction to the turntable!

The headshell body of the 2M 78 cartridge is manufactured from special compound used for within the medical industry, ensuring high rigidity whilst reducing unwanted vibration. With its improved engine, the 2M 78 cartridge provides a high level of auditory clarity. Due to the us of a strapped output, it is able to deliver the same output from both sets of pole pins, which effectively eliminates the need for mono-specific equipment.
