"The 2M Series of cartridges is designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Our philosophy is to play the record sound as accurate as possible, without coloring the sound."
The Ortofon 2M Red is our bestselling listening cartridge in its price range. The 2M's strength is its well-roundedness, both in output and design. Sound-wise, the 2M Red features well-balanced, audiophile-quality sound output. The split pole pin design results in clean, clear sound and less sound colorization. The unique exterior design is both visually pleasing and functional with a size and weight that will work with most turntables. This version is pre-mounted on a sleek metallic red SH-4 headshell.
