Product Information

An Alternative Product for Bottom Mount Tonearms

In addition to the range of acclaimed 2M top-mount models, Ortofon is proud to present the new 2M Verso configuration for bottom mounting. Every 2M model is now also available in “Verso” configuration to allow easy mounting on tonearms which do not allow the screws to pass through the top of the headshell.


Advancements in Sound

The 2M Series features Ortofon’s 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 and Ortofon OM Series.

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.

Great cartridge upgrade from the 2M Red!
Great cartridge. Less forgiving but a beautiful upgrade from the 2M Red. You will be able to tell a good pressing from a bad one. Looking forward to how this opens up sonically as it gets broken in.
