The 2M Series is designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove

 

The 2MR Black Series is the flagship MM Cartridge from Ortofon

The 2MR ("R" for “Reduced”) boasts all the same features as the standard 2M Black, but makes use of a cartridge body with reduced ride height. The result of this reduction is improved compatibility with popular tonearms and turntables that require a lower-profile cartridge.

  • Designed to be as true to the groove as possible
  • Nude Shibata diamond stylus
  • Overhead mounting cartridge for installing into a headshell
  • Moving magnet cartridge with removable stylus
  • Utilises Ortofon's split-pole pin technology to reduce the eddy current and to get a flat frequency response, like with an MC cartridge
  • Can be upgraded with other styli from the Ortofon 2M range
  • Anti-resonant Hopelex body and improved internal engine with silver-plated copper wire
  • Reduced-height 2MR cartridge body

The 2M Black is graced with a Shibata diamond stylus – the same diamond as on the acclaimed 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 cartridge body used for the 2M Black is manufactured from 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.

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.
