ℹ Product Information

Journey back in time with the 2MR 78 Mono Cartridge, specially designed for playing 78 rpm shellac records. Immerse yourself in the authentic nostalgia of mono vinyl records, brought to life with unparalleled precision and fidelity.

The 2MR 78 features a specially designed cartridge housing tailored for turntables and tonearms like Rega, matching their requirement for low-form factor cartridges. With its narrow cartridge housing, it seamlessly integrates without a need for modifications or spacers under the tonearm, enabling quick and easy mounting with just two screws.

Stylus

The 2MR 78 features a stylus' tip with a Spherical diamond, perfect for playback of 78 rpm shellac records. These unique records necessitate a larger stylus profile, and the 2MR 78 flawlessly accommodates this requirement, ensuring optimal playback quality and preserving the authenticity of your cherished collection.

Output

The 2MR 78 features a high-performance motor system incorporating unique to Ortofon quad coils with split pole pins and uses a strapped output to deliver the same output signal from both sets of pole pins. This effectively eliminates the need for mono-specific equipment, making it possible to enjoy true mono reproduction on any stereo playback system.
