The Ortofon 2M Blue Cartridge is designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Indeed, it is Ortofon’s lasting philosophy to only ever play the recorded sound, without colouration.
To obtain a flat frequency response, as with a Moving Coil cartridge, Ortofon is using split pole pins in the 2M design, to reduce the eddy current. The split pole pins are an Ortofon invention which was originally presented in the 500 and Super OM series, to great effect. This improved engine has enabled Ortofon to increase the output to an impressive 5.5 mV.
The design has been optimised for easy mounting on to a tonearm; the weight and size of all 2M models is well-suited to fit the most common turntables on today’s market.
