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.
The 2M Bronze features a fine-line, nude diamond stylus, which is particularly suited for demanding applications. The slim profile of the stylus will track even the highest frequency information, making it a must for discerning listeners. In addition, its comparatively large footprint ensures reduced distortion and record wear. The cartridge body used for the 2M Bronze and 2M Black models is manufactured from a newly-developed Noryl plastic/glass combination, a revolutionary material which ensures high rigidity while eliminating unwanted resonances. The 2M Bronze and 2M Black use a special upgraded engine, featuring split pole pins and silver-plated copper wiring.
Ortofon's 2M cartridges are designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in record grooves. The company's philosophy is to reproduce the recorded information as accurately as possible, without colouring the sound in any way. Both the 2M Bronze and 2M Black have diamonds which are cut and polished to the highest industry standards. The 2M design has also been optimised for easy tone arm mounting, and the weight and size of the cartridge is suitable for most turntables on the market. The 2M Bronze and 2M Black also have interchangeable stylus units, and replacement styli are available.
