Experience the true essence of vinyl records with the Ortofon 2M 78 true mono cartridge. Specifically designed for the playback of 78 rpm shellac records, this cartridge features a spherical diamond stylus tip that perfectly complements the grooves of your vintage collection. The cartridge body, crafted from Hopelex, ensures high rigidity and eliminates unwanted resonances, promising a high level of sonic accuracy. Moreover, the 2M 78 uses a strapped output to deliver the same output signal from both sets of pole pins, eliminating the need for mono-specific equipment and allowing true mono reproduction on any stereo playback system.

Key Features

  • Spherical Diamond Stylus: The stylus tip, with a radius of 65 µm, is perfect for the playback of 78 rpm shellac records, offering a larger stylus profile for optimal tracking.
  • High Sonic Accuracy: The improved engine provides a high level of sonic accuracy, enhancing your listening experience.
  • Versatile Compatibility: Enjoy true mono reproduction on any stereo playback system without the need for mono-specific equipment.
  • Easy Installation: The 2M series is designed for easy mounting, fitting most common turntables available in the market today.
