Ortofon 2M Blue Moving Magnet Cartridge

The Ortofon 2M Blue Moving Magnet Cartridge 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 name Ortofon 2M Blue Moving Magnet Cartridge was selected among several ideas. We wanted a modern name that would 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.

The 2M series of cartridges feature Ortofon’s trademark split pole pins, an invention which 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 Super OM series.

The Ortofon 2M Blue Moving Magnet Cartridge uses an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV.

We have optimized the design of Ortofon 2M Blue Moving Magnet Cartridge for ease of mounting the cartridge, weight and size to fit the most common turntables at the market today.

Ortonfon are a Danish company founded in 1918 primarily involved in the manufacture of styli and cartridges for vinyl reproduction. Ortofon developed the first moving coil cartridge in 1948. The company produce both moving magnet and moving coil cartridges for both the professional and domestic hifi markets. Ortofon's latest range of moving coil cartridges is called the Quintet range, as it consists of five cartridges, the Qunintet Red, Blue, Bronze and Black and Mono.

As you progress through the range, the cut of the stylus tip changes as do the materials that the cantilever is made from. Qunitet red has a bonded elliptical tip. The blue has a nude elliptical tip. The bronze has a nude fineline tip and the black has a nude shibata tip. As the tip cuts change the amount of vertical contact made with the vinyl increases and the lateral contact decreases. Thus you get better information retrieval, better dynamic, a faster response, a more airy sound and a more natural decay the more you invest with Ortofon.
