Product Description

Ortofon 2M 78 cartridge gets an even better sound from your 78 r.p.m speed records by applying Ortofon's experience from the rest of the best selling 2M range.

The 78 cartridge features an improved design, which provides a high level of sonic accuracy with a spherical diamond that is perfect for playback of 78 rpm records, which require a larger stylus profile.

About the 2M range

The 2M Series of cartridges is designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Their philosophy is to play the record sound as accurate as possible, without coloring the sound.

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

Ortofon have optimized the design 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.
