Ortofon 2M Red Moving Magnet Cartridge

The Ortofon 2M Red is available for demonstration in our Hull store.

Occasionally in the hi-fi industry a classic design cartridge comes through which manages to meet all of the requirements for a cartridge such as decent output level, full range response and excellent detail with no harshness to the treble response. The Ortofon 2M red does all of this at a very keen price as it often outperforms cartridges costing more.

The 2M Red has a very good output of 5.5mV which allows it to suit any phono stages MM input pefectly, and the use of Ortofon`s own split pole internal design assures an even frequency response to give a lovely natural sound but with impressive small level detail thanks to the elliptical stylus profile.

The cartridges low weight of only 7.2g allows for easy mounting onto the majority of tonearms with ease.

Ortofon At Fanthorpes

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.
