Product Description

The 2M Black Series is the MM flagship from Ortofon

The 2M Black is graced with a Shibata diamond stylus – the same diamond as on the acclaimed MC Jubilee. Its slim, highly polished profile allows an exceedingly wide contact area to the groove walls and ensures notably detailed reproduction throughout the spectrum, including even the most high frequency groove information.

The cartridge body used for the 2M Black is manufactured from a newly-developed Lexan DMX Piano Black, a revolutionary material which ensures high rigidity while eliminating unwanted resonances.

The 2M Black uses a special upgraded engine, featuring split pole pins with a silver plated copper wire.

Reviews

For those after a powerful, yet fun-loving performance, this Ortofon should be a must-listen. (It is) very detailed, impressive transparency, insightful.

What HiFi Magazine, 29th March 2011

Having lived with and enjoyed the Reson Reca for many years I’d have to say the Ortofon is spot on at this price range. Which one to go for would be taste dependent but the Ortofon’s strengths in detail, imaging, tracking and neutrality make for a compelling case. If you’re looking for a cartridge in this price range, be it MM or MC, it should definitely be on your shortlist.
