Product Information

The 2M Blue Plug-and-Play headshell is a practical and elegant solution for 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! 

Highlights

  • An improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV, an optimized sound reproduction, and a high level of sonic accuracy
  • Nude Elliptical diamond and split pole pins with a copper wire
  • Adds more dynamics and resolution, sounds more open, and reproduces more details than 2M Red

Features

Advancements in Sound

The 2M Series features Ortofon’s trademark split pole pins, an invention that 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 and Ortofon OM Series. The 2M 78, 2M Mono, 2M Red, and 2M Blue use an improved engine, which provides an optimized sound reproduction and a high level of sonic accuracy.

Ease of Use

The weight and size of 2M Series have been optimized to fit the most common turntables on the market today. The cartridge body has also been streamlined to provide easy mounting and alignment. The name “2M” was chosen as it represents the abbreviation for moving magnet, MM. Moving magnet cartridges provide excellent compatibility in an assortment of playback systems and with a wide variety of phono preamps.

Stylus Types

All of the 2M cartridges feature diamonds that are polished to the highest standards of the industry.

2M Plug-and-Play

The 2M PnP cartridges are available premounted on Ortofon's exclusive 2M series headshell for easy attachment to most bayonet-style, removable headshell tonearms. The 2M PnP is a practical and elegant solution that adds unique distinction to your turntable.

Ortofon 2M Blue Plug-and-Play Moving Magnet Cartridge MK II (Blue)
I can't believe how easy this was to connect to my turntable. Very easy, just a little twist & turn and set it to 1.8 grams. And boy does it sound great! I love it! ....................
