Ortofon 2M Black MM Cartridge with Shibata Stylus

Orotofon is one of the worlds most trusted brands for turntable cartridges - from DJ's and radio stations to Audiophiles and Music lovers. When moving up in the world of vinyl playback the 2M Moving Magnet range represent the best value to performance with maximum compatibility.

The best of everything, true to the groove ...  


The 2M Black is the top of the range MM cartridge in the Ortofon line up and it certainly sounds magnificent! The 2M black pulls a lot more detail out of the groove as it is graced with a Shibata diamond stylus – the same diamond as on the acclaimed Ortofon MC Jubilee. Its 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 also has deeper, tighter bass than the other 2M series cartridges as well as a wider, deeper sound stage.

The cartridge body used for the 2M Black is manufactured from a newly-developed Lexan DMX Piano Black, a revolutionary 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.

Ortofon 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.
