The 2M Red features a tipped Elliptical diamond and split pole pins with a copper wire.

An improved engine provides an increased output of 5.5 mV and an optimized sound reproduction and a high level of sonic accuracy.

The cartridge body is manufactured fromHopelex, which ensures high rigidity while eliminating unwanted resonances.

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

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


2M standard model for top mount headshells. We have optimized the design for ease of mounting the cartridge; the weight and dimensions fit the most common turntables on the market today.

2M Verso configuration for bottom mount headshells. 2M Verso allows for easy mounting on tonearms which do not allow the screws to pass through the top of the headshell.
