Details

Details

The Ortofon 2M Red MKII PnP Moving Magnet Cartridge builds upon the original, and has been developed in conjunction with Møller Jensen Design , a Danish industrial design company. This Danish designer has previously worked on the MC Jubilee and Kontrapunkt series, both of which are renowned award winners. The inspiration for the 2M Red MKII relates to the facets of the diamond, elegantly concentrating the contours against the grooves on the record surface and establishing the 2M Red’s excellent combination of form with functionality. Featuring Ortofon’s trademark split pole pins, enabling the moving magnet cartridge to produce a flat frequency response, this 2M Red MKII allows a moving magnet cartridge to achieve the same frequency response as a moving coil cartridge, thus remaining consistent in its delivery of high quality audio.

Optimised in order to ease its mounting, the 2M Red MKII is just the right weight and size that it will fit all of the most common turntables available on the market today. The 2M series is guaranteed to provide you with excellent compatibility when it is used in a wide variety of playback systems and phono preamps. Universal mount fitting a wide range of S-shaped tonearms.
