ℹ Product Information

Ortofon 2M Mono Cartridge

Immerse yourself in the lush symphony of pure, accurate sound with Ortofon's 2M Mono Cartridge. A testament to our relentless pursuit of sonic perfection, the 2M Mono Series evolves the audio experience with an innovative design engineered for precision. Rooted in authenticity, our aim is to reproduce the record's sound as faithfully as possible – no more, no less - with an uncompromising dedication to truth and purity. Our latest offering, the 2M Mono, is the definition of modernity, brilliantly capturing the essence of the music while remaining immensely approachable and accessible.

The name Ortofon 2M Mono, an acronym of Moving Magnet (MM) represents not just its functionality but its commitment to delivering seamless performance and unparalleled sound quality across differing playback systems and wide range of phono preamps. It’s moving magnet technology, and the split pole pins - an original Ortofon invention are what allows the 2M Mono Cartridge to unfurl the deepest nuances of music with a flat frequency response, traditionally associated only with a moving coil cartridge. Ideal for today's turntables, this cartridge boasts an optimised design for ease of mounting and features that render it virtually universal. Furthermore, the 2M Mono Verso model provide a suitable option for those requiring a bottom mount tonearm setup.

Backed by the power of an upgraded engine and a nude spherical stylus, the 2M Mono provides aural accuracy that rivals the live experience, and offers a stylus tip that is explicitly designed for mono microgroove LP vinyl records. The 2M Mono comes with a strapped output which ensures identical output signal from both sets of pole pins, eliminating the need for mono-specific equipment, thereby allowing you to luxuriate in genuine mono sound on any stereo playback system. Embrace the quintessential aspects of vinyl-listening bliss with the 2M Mono - the epitome of what a superior cartridge should aspire to be.

Features:

  1. Superior Moving Magnet Technology: Inspired by the principles of physics, the 2M Mono uses moving magnet technology, ensuring smoother operations and quality of sound.

  2. Split Pole Pins: An Ortofon proprietary innovation, this feature escalates the 2M Mono's performance, offering a flat frequency response traditionally seen in a moving coil cartridge.

  3. Ease of Mounting: Engineered for convenience, its optimized design enables effortless cartridge mounting, making the 2M Mono compatible with the majority of turntables in the market today.

  4. Nude Spherical Stylus: It comes with a specialized stylus tip designed for mono microgroove LP vinyl records, offering aural authenticity that delivers truly immersive audio experiences.

  5. Strapped Output System: The Ortofon 2M Mono Series provides a strapped output, eliminating the need for mono-specific equipment, making it flexible and adaptable for any stereo playback system.

  6. Mono Verso Model: For those needing a bottom mount tonearm setup, the 2M Mono Verso model comes as a luxury addition ensuring it fits perfectly into your living room aesthetics.

  7. Plug and Play Model: Direct and easy mounting and replacement on the tonearm make 2M an attractive choice for consumers seeking convenience along with premium performance.

  3. Effortless Setup: The 2M Mono's intuitive design makes installation quick and hassle-free, making it the perfect choice for those seeking a premium, easy-to-use cartridge.

  4. Authentic Audio Reproduction: With its specialized stylus tip, the 2M Mono impeccably replicates the nuances of mono microgroove LP vinyl records, maintaining the authenticity of the original sound.
