Excellent Tracking Ability, Extremely Low-Noise Playback, and Plug-and-Play Setup: Exceptional-Value Ortofon 2M PNP MkII Bronze MM Phono Cartridge Features Polished Fine-Line Stylus
Equipped with a new, lightweight "plug n' play" headshell that allows for direct and easy mounting on any tonearm, Ortofon's 2M PNP MkII Bronze MM phono cartridge features a nude Fine-Line stylus, polished to the highest standards. The slimmer profile of this stylus tracks even the highest-frequency modulations, making 2M PNP Bronze well-suited for extremely demanding material. Surface noise is kept to a minimum due the stylus profile. Distortion and record wear are substantially reduced. Ortofon's trademark split pole pins, which enable MM cartridges to have flat frequency response just like MC designs, aid in its exceptional performance.
2M Series is designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Ortofon's philosophy is to make cartridges that reproduce the record grooves as accurately as possible, without coloring the sound. 2M Series is optimized for ease of mounting. Its weight and size fit virtually any turntable.
Developed in conjunction with Danish designer Møller Jensen Design – the same designer who created Ortofon's award-winning MC Jubilee and successful Kontrapunkt Series – 2M Series is inspired by the facets of a diamond, whose contours gracefully trace the grooves on a record's surface, 2M's handsome elegance establishes a great combination of form and functionality.
