At the pinacle of the Ortofon 2M range, the Ortofon 2m black moving magnet cartridge has a superb musical performance which will reward with hours of sonic pleasure.
The 2M black has been designed to be easy to fit and align, and will fit 99% of all standard headshells, arms and turntables.
Low distortion, minimal tracking error and disc wear is achieved by the use of a high end Shibata stylus profile. The full musical detail is extracted from the groove by Ortofon 2m black, high frequency tracking is impecable whilst stereo images are wide, deep and high.
The black housing is made from a special non-resonant material which avoids colouration of the sound. A silver wired generator system and advanced geometry coils ensure the finest musical signal is passed to your amplifier .
