Ortofon 2M 78 PnP Moving Magnet Cartridge

The Ortofon 2M 78 PnP Moving Magnet Cartridge including Head shell is a practical and elegant solution for customers who wish direct and easy mounting and replacement on their tonearm. The inspiration for designing the Ortofon 2M 78 moving magnet cartridges series was related to the facets of the diamond - elegantly concentrating its contours against the grooves on the record surface and allowing a very useful medium to pay 78 RPM records

The name 2M was selected among several ideas Ortofon wanted to select a modern name which should be easy to pronounce and to remember, and therefore an alpha numerical name was chosen, the 2M stands for MM, which is the abbreviation for moving magnet. Ortofon are using the same names on our 2M series as they used in the Rondo series: Red, Blue and Bronze.

Ortofon have optimized the design for ease of mounting the cartridge, weight and size to fit the most common turntables at the market today. The Ortofon 2M 78 moving magnet cartridges both have interchangeable stylus units and replacement stylus is available and 2M Blue are designed to retrieve precise and accurate information from the record groove.

Ortofon's philosophy is to play the record sound as accurate as possible, without coloring the sound. To obtain a flat frequency response as with a Moving Coil cartridge they are using the slit pole pins to reduce the eddy current. The slit pole pins is an Ortofon invention which was presented in the 500 series and the Super OM series.

The Ortofon 2M 78 Moving Magnet Cartridge features an improved True Mono engine, which provides a high level of sonic accuracy, as well as expertly cut Spherical diamond that is perfect for playback of 78 rpm records which require a larger stylus profile. The 2M 78 and 2MMono offer users of older, rare vinyl a higher-quality playback medium than had previously been available.

The head shell body is manufactured from a special compound used for Medical industry, ensures high rigidity while reducing unwanted vibration. The attached head shell is of an extremely elegant hi-tech design with a Length 52mm

The combination of 2M Head shell and 2M Series cartridge adds unique distinction to the turntable!
