Ortofon 2M Blue Moving Magnet Cartridge


2M Blue is an all-purpose cartridge that delivers open, dynamic sound with a slight touch of warmth.

  • An improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5 mV and an optimized sound reproduction and a high level of sonic accuracy.
  • Nude Elliptical diamond and?split pole pins with a copper wire
  • The cartridge body is manufactured from Hopelex, an environment-friendly material which ensures high rigidity while eliminating unwanted resonances.


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, with minimal coloration.

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.
We have?optimised?the design of the 2M series for ease of mounting the cartridge, weight and size to fit the most common turntables at the market today. 2M Series provides excellent compatibility in an assortment of playback systems and with a wide variety of?phono?preamps.
