2M  SERIES  1/2"   Mount  Audiophile  Cartridges 

2M RED
Moving Magnet Phono Cartridge

Features:

- an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5 mV and an optimized sound reproduction and a high level of sonic accuracy
- a tipped Elliptical diamond and split pole pins with a copper wire
-
the cartridge body is manufactured from Hopelex, an environment-friendly 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.

2M Red is an all-purpose cartridge that delivers open, dynamic sound with a slight touch of warmth.

  • 2M Series styli interchangeability:
    The 2M Series' engines, coils and magnets configurations are not identical: Red and Blue are identical, so are the Bronze and Black and so are the true mono variants 2M Mono and 2M 78. Likewise, 2M series styli are interchangeable within the below combinations: 
    - 2M Red, 2M Blue and 2M Silver
    - 2M Bronze and 2M Black
    - 2M Mono and 2M 78

    Compatibility with Rega brand TT/TA: 
    REGA brand cartridgesĺ height from stylus tip to the top cartridge mounting surface is lower than standard. Therefore you would need spacers to ensure the correct set-up of the Ortofon cartridge. Please read about cartridge set-up and alignment on tonearm on our FAQ
    Adjusting the height of your Rega tonearm is easy with Acoustic Signature's Spacer Set. It allows you to adjust the height from 0.5 mm to 3.5 mm in precise steps of 0.5 mm - without removing the tone arm. Simply loosen the screws, insert the AS-spacer, then lock the screws back down, and you're tonearm is ready to play.

    ...While the 2M Black sounds more immediately impressive, the 2M Bronze is the more satisfying over the long haul, halving the difference between the Black's speed and resolution and the Blue's balance. In fact... it is a mixture of all of these sonic virtues.

"...the Ortofon worked fine from new and cold...well - focused and relatively neutral sound, tidy and tuneful...
...more focused around a level midband....could find low bass where needed...
...had a very impressive ability to sound balanced...
...allowing a performance to be listened into with ease...
...will suit anyone after a more natural sound.."

2M BLACK
Moving Magnet Phono Cartridge

Features:

The 2M Black Series is the MM flagship from Ortofon

- The 2M Black is 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 cartridge body is manufactured from Hopelex, an environment-friendly material which ensures high rigidity while eliminating unwanted resonances.
- The 2M Black uses a special upgraded engine, featuring split pole pins with a silver plated copper wire.

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.

REVIEWS:

The Audio Beat, August 2016
Exploring Ortofon's 2M Lineup
by Marc Mickelson

"...The 2M line has become a de facto reference for moving-magnet cartridges...it is due to both the sound quality of the various 2M models as well as the wide price range across the line... The differences among the four stereo 2M models occur in three primary areas: stylus profile, body material, and engine ...
... The 2M Black is "open, fast, detailed, vivid, full of vitality and sonically spectacular." It is a true high-resolution transducer that consequently puts great demands on the downstream electronics and speakers...
...On the other end, the 2M Red is far more forgiving than the 2M Black, but also less involving, at least in the context of my system (the turntable is a Technics SP-15 with an Audio-Technica ATP-12T tonearm, both in a Technics SH-15B2 base - red.)...
...with the 2M Blue ...you get the audiophile treatment: a full-range, highly resolving presentation that sounds neither stiff nor unforgiving. In fact, the 2M Blue's balance, both tonally and in terms of overall resolution, may be its greatest feat. It's an easy cartridge to listen to, and even novice listeners...
...While the 2M Black sounds more immediately impressive, the 2M Bronze is the more satisfying over the long haul, halving the difference between the Black's speed and resolution and the Blue's balance. In fact... it is a mixture of all of these sonic virtues. It's fast, but not ostentatiously so; it turns information into music, and it does this because it is better balanced, neither leaning in one sonic direction or another. I would say that it represents not just the 2M line's sweet spot but also its musical core. ..."

TNT Audio, April 2016
Reviewer: Graeme Budd

"...the Ortofon's strengths in detail, imaging, tracking and neutrality make for a compelling case. If you're looking for a cartridge in this price range, be it MM or MC, it should definitely be on your shortlist."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi-Fi News Yearbook 2011

"...When set-up, the Ortofon 2M Black was immediately engaging, sounding powerful and vivid...
...it was natural recordings of full orchestra that confirmed that the 2M Black is a stellar moving-magnet cartridge...
...The 2M Black delivers a holographic imagery worthy of the most sophisticated vinyl replay systems."
