Orofon's Unique 2M Design
The Ortofon 2M magnetic cartridge system is designed and developed for high performance reproduction of your favorite analogue records.Ortofon has developed magnetic cartridges in various designs for many types of record players, tone arms and for special purposes throughout the last 40 years. And now - as we approach Ortofon´s 90 years Company Anniversary - we decided to combine our expertise and latest technology in the development of this outstanding cartridge design. As a result of reviewer listening tests we feel confident that you will appreciate and enjoy the unique qualities of these cartridges.
2M is developed together with the Danish designer "MøllerJensen Design" from Copenhagen, Denmark - the same designer who designed the award winning cartridge MC Jubilee and the Kontrapunkt series. The inspiration for designing the 2M was related to the facets of the diamond - elegantly concentrating its contours against the grooves on the record surface. The name 2M was selected among several ideas. We wanted a modernname which should be easy to pronounce and to remember, and therefore an alpha numerical name was chosen. 2M means MM, which is the abbreviation for moving magnet. We are using the same names on our 2M series as we use at our Rondo series: Red, Blue and Bronze. The 2M Black will become the flagship of 2M. 2M was the last product of our former chief engineer Per Windfield. He has worked with the 2M for the last two years.
If your tone arm does not have an Azimuth adjustment you can never truly align the needle to the groove. The Azimuth (rotation of the headshell) provides fine adjustment to make the stylus 90 degrees to the record surface (in line looking from the front of the tone arm).
