Hear the Musicality, Speed, and Detail Wrought by a Shibata Stylus: Ortofon 2M PNP Black Phono Cartridge Delivers Inky Backgrounds

Back in black – as in inky black backgrounds and black-as-the-night quiet reproduction – serves as an apt mantra for the Ortofon 2M PNP Black MM phono cartridge. Most significantly, 2M PNP Black features a Shibata stylus, normally not found on cartridges anywhere near this price. And with its heavily upgraded generator and proprietary body material, 2M PNP Black is exceedingly fast all the while remaining pristinely detailed and supremely musical. A "plug n' play" headshell that allows for direct and easy mounting on any tonearm further enhances the value of 2M PNP Black. Ortofon's trademark split pole pins, which enable MM cartridges to have flat frequency response just like MC designs, further aid in performance that will have you pulling out LP after LP and listening late into the early morning hours.

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.
