The 2M series of cartridges feature 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 series and Super OM series.
We have optimised the design of the 2M series for ease of mounting the cartridge, weight and size to fit the most common turntables at the market today. 2M Series provides excellent compatibility in an assortment of playback systems and with a wide variety of phono preamps.

The 2M Silver Series features:
• An improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV
• Elliptical diamond and split pole pins with a copper wire
• Silver spools to the cartridge body; resulting in a new level of sound performance.

The new 2M headshell is a practical and elegant solution for our customers who want direct and easy mounting and replacement on their tonearm. The combination of 2M Headshell and 2M Series cartridge adds a unique distinction to the turntable!
