Ortofon 2M Blue Moving Magnet Cartridge

Moving Magnet is the most common type of phono cartridge, so many integrated amplifiers now feature a Moving Magnet phono stage and many manufacturers, such as Ortofon design and construct a wide range of MM cartridges with varying levels of quality. While every MM cartridge makes use of this fundamental construction, the way that this is implemented within a cartridge varies as do the materials used, allowing for differing qualities and a unique sound-signature depending on the brand and model. 

With a nude elliptical stylus, the Ortofon 2m Blue moving magnet cartridge can deliver superb stereo sound from your vinyl record collection. Great tracking and minimal distortion are assured, whilst the low resonance body keeps colouration of the music to very low levels. Flat frequency response is produced thanks to Ortofon's split pin generator system. Designed for easy mounting and alignment, a superb music-making cartridge.
