Description:

All Ortofon 2M models were developed in conjunction with the Danish designer Moeller Jensen Design and are inspired by the facets of a diamond. All 2M models include Ortofon’s trademark split pole pins, which provide Moving Magnet cartridges with a flat frequency response, as it is the case with Moving Coil models. Furthermost, Ortofon suggest that with proper care, it is possible to achieve 1000 usage hours without degradation of performance.

The 2M Black is Ortofon’s flagship moving magnet cartridge, graced with a Shibata diamond which slim, highly polished profile allows an exceedingly wide contact area to the groove walls and ensures notably detailed reproduction throughout the spectrum, including even the most high frequency groove information. The 2M Black’s performance will satisfy even the most demanding audiophiles.
