2M Blue Moving Magnet MM Cartridge, by Ortofon.

2M Blue features an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5 mV and an optimised sound reproduction and a high level of sonic accuracy. The cartridge body is manufactured from Hopelex, an environment-friendly material which ensures high rigidity while eliminating unwanted resonances, while the stylus is a nude elliptical diamond with split pole pins and copper wire.

Ortofon have optimised the design for ease of cartridge mounting, and the weight and size will fit the most common turntables on the market today. The 2M Series provides excellent compatibility when used in an assortment of playback systems and with a wide variety of phono preamps.

The 2M Blue adds more dynamics and resolution, sounds more open and reproduces more details compared to the 2M Red model.

2M Blue Standard / 2M Blue Verso

The Ortofon 2M Blue is available in Standard model or 2M Blue Verso model. The Verso has twin screws protruding from the top of the cartridge mount, and is an alternative product for bottom mount headshells.

Please choose the correct 2M Blue model for your turntable / tonearm. Do contact us if you require assistance or are unsure.
