Ortofon 2M Red

The Ortofon 2M Red MM Cartridge features an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV and an optimized sound reproduction and a high level of sonic accuracy & a tipped Elliptical diamond and split pole pins with a copper wire. The 2M Red is an all-purpose cartridge that delivers open, dynamic sound with a slight touch of warmth!

The 2M Series is developed in conjunction with the Danish Industrial designer Møller Jensen Design, the same designer who designed the award winning MC Jubilee and Kontrapunkt series. Inspired by the facets of a diamond, whose contours gracefully trace the grooves on a record's surface, the 2M's handsome elegance establishes a great combination of form and functionality.

The name 2M was selected from among several ideas. Ortofon wanted a modern name that would be easy to pronounce and remember, and therefore an alphanumerical name was chosen. 2M means MM, which is the abbreviation for moving magnet.

Of course the 2M isn't just another pretty face. It has been engineered to the highest standards and is congruent with Ortofon's unrelenting commitment to providing the most precise and accurate reproduction possible without coloration.

The 2M series of cartridges features Ortofon's trademark split pole pins, an invention that enables moving magnet cartridges to have a flat frequency response, as with a moving coil cartridge. Split pole pins were invented by Ortofon, and were originally presented in the 500 series and OM Super series.

Ortofon has optimized the design for ease of mounting the cartridge, and the weight and size to 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.

SH-4 Headshell

Ortofon SH-4 headshells are high-quality, solid headshells for variety of applications.

The SH-4 headshell has an ergonomic design with a long finger that is easy to pick-up. The big finger grip and shorter construction makes movement and placement of the headshell easy and visible.

The wire terminals on the rear side are also gold plated for better signal transmission.

The SH-4 comes with leadwires for easy and convenient connection.

All Ortofon cartridges have a colour coding of the terminals, indicating red and green for right channel respectively hot and ground terminal. White and blue for left channel respectively hot and ground terminal. Green terminal will always be used for grounding the cartridge housings or motor-system, whenever connected inside the cartridge.
