The 2M Red features a tipped Elliptical diamond and split pole pins with a copper wire.
An improved engine provides an increased output of 5.5 mV and an optimized sound reproduction and a high level of sonic accuracy.
The cartridge body is manufactured from Hopelex, which ensures high rigidity while eliminating unwanted resonances.
Ortofon has 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.
