The NEW Ortofon 2MR Cartridges
The Ortofon 2MR systems feature, specially designed cartridge housings, is tailored for turntables and tonearms such as Rega or Dual with an adapter plate, meeting their low profile cartridge requirements. With the low-profile cartridge housing, they can be screwed directly under the tonearm without the need for modifications or spacers on the tonearm. This allows for quick and easy installation with just two screws.
Now you can really immerse yourself in the music even on turntables with lower-height tonearms - without any complicated modifications, simply with the new 2MR Red.
Remember the time when you fell in love with music? The 2MR Red will rekindle that flame and give music meaning again. From the moment the diamond-studded stylus hits the groove, you'll feel it instantly. The 2MR Red features Ortofon's very own invention, the Split Pole Pins, which provide sound reproduction so precise that only your heart can skip a beat. With the 2MR Red, you'll hear the music come to life. It's as if you're immersed in the music itself with one step. This is Ortofon's 2MR cartridge for hi-fi beginners. What a stunning entry point it is.
The Ortofon 2MR Red features an elliptical diamond and a high-performance four-coil generator with copper split pole pins, an increased output power of 5.5 mV and full compatibility with the Ortofon 2M series stylus inserts. Thus, it impresses with an optimised reproduction and offers a high degree of sonic precision in the entry-level segment.
The weight and size of the 2MR Red are designed to fit most turntables with a low tonearm height. In addition, the 2MR Red offers excellent compatibility with a wide range of playback systems and phono preamps.
Sound image – the 2MR/2M Red delivers an open, dynamic sound with a slight hint of warmth.
