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 recordʼs surface, the 2Mʼs 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 isnʼt just another pretty face. It has been engineered to the highest standards and is congruent with Ortofonʼs unrelenting commitment to providing the most precise and accurate reproduction possible without coloration.

The 2M series of cartridges feature Ortofonʼs 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 Red uses an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV. 2M red features a tipped elliptical diamond.

The MC 3 Turbo takes high output moving coil (MC) cartridges a step further, with a high polished, nude fine line diamond.  The MC 3 Turbo has a 3.3mV output, which is perfect for use with virtually any moving magnet (MM) phono preamps, included inbuilt models.  The nude fine line diamond resolves a high level of detail and provides expansive stereo imaging.
