Product Information

The 2M Series of cartridges is designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Ortofon's philosophy is to play the record sound as accurate as possible, without coloring the sound.

The 2M Bronze features a nude Fine Line diamond stylus, which is particularly suited for demanding applications. The slim profile of the Fine Line stylus will track even the highest frequency information, making it a must for discerning listeners. Additionally, its larger footprint ensures reduced distortion and record wear.

The cartridge body used for the 2M Bronze is manufactured from a newly-developed Lexan DMX Piano Black, a revolutionary material which ensures high rigidity while eliminating unwanted resonances.

We have optimized the design for ease of mounting the cartridge, and the weight and size to fit the most common turntables on the market today. The 2M Series provides excellent compatibility when used in an assortment of playback systems and with a wide variety of phono preamps.

The 2M Bronze uses a special upgraded engine, featuring split pole pins with a silver plated copper wire.

Nice dynamic range and very revealing to my ears
Excellent cartridge as I was coming from an ortofon blue. Definitely recommend this for the increase in frequency response alone.

This cartridge is absolutely incredible and very precise, but still has a fair amount of warmth that most vinyl collectors want. Highly recommend.

Pros: the absolute best keyboard sound of ant cartridge that I’ve ever heard.

Cons: it needs to be set up properly for peak performance requiring you to raise the time-arm on the Planar 3 with shims which causes the lid to improperly close.

Rega Planar 3 Turntable with Elys 2 MM Cartridge (Gloss Black)
  Let me please begin by saying that Rega very masterfully marries cartridge with table as a package concept, soncically and the cartridge that comes with the Planar3 is an astonishing cartridge and by no means is an after-thought or a 'through-away'. In fact it's one of the reasons one purchases a Rega table. That being said, if you want to replace it, the 2MBronze.
