The new 2M PNP cartridge with headshell is a practical and elegant solution for customers who prefer direct and easy mounting and replacement on their tonearm.
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. All of the 2M cartridges feature diamonds which are polished to the highest standards in the industry. The 2M Blue features a nude elliptical diamond. The 2M series has interchangeable stylus units and replacement stylus is available. To obtain a flat frequency response as with a Moving Coil cartridge we are using the slit pole pins to reduce the eddy current. The slit pole pins is an Ortofon invention which was presented in the 500 series and the Super OM series. The 2M Blue uses an engine with slit pole pins. With this improved engine we have been able to increase to output to 5,5 mV. 2M is developed together with the Danish designer "MøllerJensen Design" from Copenhagen, Denmark - the same designer who designed the award winning cartridge MC Jubilee and the Kontrapunktseries.
