Product Description

Ortofon 2M Bronze features a Nude Fine Line diamond which is particularly suited for demanding applications. The slim profile tracks even the highest frequencies to appease discerning listeners.

Additionally, its larger footprint ensures reduced distortion and record wear. This is an alternative to the original 2M Bronze made for bottom mount headshells.

Difference between 2M Bronze and 2M Bronze Verso

The 2M Bronze Verso features an improved engine which provides an increased output of 5mV and an optimised sound reproduction and a high level of sonic accuracy. It also has a nude fine line stylus and special upgraded engine, featuring split pole pins with a silver plated copper wire. The cartridge body is manufactured from an environment-friendly material called Hopelex which ensures high rigidity while eliminating unwanted resonances.

2M Bronze Verso vs 2M Black Verso

2M Bronze uses a nude fine line stylus over a shibata model used on the Black so shares much of the sonic characteristics with the exception of the wider frequency range. The engines, coils and magnets are identical in the Bronze and Black models, just like the configuration of the Red and Blue models are identical.

These models are interchangeable:

- 2M Red, 2M Blue
- 2M Bronze and 2M Black
- 2M Mono and 2M 78

Ease of use

The design is optimised for ease of mounting the cartridge and employs a weight and size that fits most common turntables today. 2M Bronze Verso delivers excellent compatibility when used in a choice of playback systems and with a variety of phono preamps.

How to replace M2.0mm screws

Remove the stylus with protection guard from the cartridge body to avoid damage to the diamond. Use Torx 8 key to unscrew the black screw from the Verso top plate and remove this from the cartridge body. Remove the two countersunk screws from the top plate then insert the two M2.0mm screws in the top plate Mount the top plate and hold with screw-threads hanging down. Turn the cartridge body 180 degrees and mount from above fixing the black screw in the top plate.

Once tightened, mount the cartridge on the tonearm then reattach the stylus with the stylus protection guard on to the cartridge body. The package includes a stylus brush, allen key Torx 6 and an allen key Torx 8 plus two screw M2.0 x 6 and a stylus pressure gauge to assist you with this process. 

Ortofon 2M Legacy

The 2M Series was developed in partnership with the Danish Industrial designer Møller Jensen Design who also designed the award winning MC Jubilee series. Inspired by the contours of a diamond which gracefully traces the grooves on a record’s surface, the 2M’s elegance establishes a great mix of form and functionality.

2M was selected as a modern name that is easy to pronounce and remember and plays on the abbreviation for moving magnet (MM). 2M is engineered to the highest standards and represents Ortofon’s unrelenting commitment to providing the most precise and accurate reproduction possible without coloration.

Performs like an MC Cartridge

The 2M series of cartridges feature patented 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 OM Super series.

What replacement stylus does 2M Bronze Verso use?

2M Bronze Verso uses the 2M Bronze stylus which is interchangeable with 2M Black. With proper care, this can play up to 1000 hours with no performance degradation.
