ORTOFON 2MR - THE TECHNICAL ARGUMENT

The 2M range of moving magnet cartridges has established itself over many years as one of the foremost solutions for high-quality vinyl playback at a competitive price. Spanning many awards and critical reviews, plus countless endorsements from fans around the world - across the whole 2M range there is a solution to suit any type of user.

2M Reduced, or 2MR, aims to expand the offering further by taking the same 2M design and technology, but delivering it in a cartridge with reduced height to suit a variety of other tonearms or use cases.
 

VTA - WHY DOES IT MATTER?

The Vertical Tracking Angle (VTA) is the angle between the pivot-point of a cartridge's cantilever and where the diamond touches the record groove. Ortofon cartridges are constructed so that the cantilever angle corresponds to the 20º record cutting angle, when the cartridge is loaded with recommended tracking force and the cartridge base is parallel with the tonearm, which in turn is parallel to the record surface. As a result of this design, if your cartridge is ever mounted on a tonearm where it must lean even slightly backward compared to the record surface, the VTA will not be correct and you will lose important musical details.

The existing 2M range is well suited to many tonearms in the modern market, and is perfectly at home on tonearms with adjustable VTA. However, there are many tonearms from popular turntable makers, such as Linn, Rega, Pro-Ject and others, where the VTA is not adjustable and the regular 2M cartridge height is too high. Similarly, there are instances where you may wish to modify your turntable with a thicker mat or platter upgrade and you need to compensate with reduced cartridge height.

Enter 2MR.

THE 2MR SOLUTION

 

2MR reduces the overall cartridge body height to 14mm, saving you 3mm over the standard version. This reduction makes a world of difference  to the achievable sound quality of your turntable where VTA is an issue with a standard 2M cartridge. It's also infinitely easier to accommodate than many tonearm modifications or upgrades you may otherwise need to make.

As this different sized cartridge option is helpful in many use cases, each model of the 2M range is available as a 2MR variant, including the 2M Black LVB250, the 2M Mono and the 2M 78. For convenience, the 2MR styli are exactly the same as the regular 2M range styli and can be swapped and upgraded as effortlessly as the regular range.

The 2M Black LVB 250 builds on the concept of the original?2M Black?cartridge design to take one step further toward true high-end sound. Redefining what is possible from a moving magnet (MM) cartridge, the 2M Black LVB 250 is truly an exercise in technical excellence.

  • Flagship moving magnet cartridge capable of absolutely true-to-life musical reproduction
  • Nude Shibata diamond stylus
  • Superior boron cantilever
  • Overhead mounting cartridge for installing into a headshell
  • Moving magnet cartridge with removable stylus
  • Utilises Ortofon's split-pole pin technology to reduce the eddy current and to get a flat frequency response, like with an MC cartridge

 

  • Anti-resonant Hopelex body and improved internal engine with silver-plated copper wire
  • Reduced-height 2MR cartridge body

2M BLACK LVB 250 TECHNOLOGY

The 2M Black LVB 250 uses a Nude Shibata diamond on a Boron cantilever. This combination is also found on the acclaimed MC Cadenza Black cartridge. The Nude Shibata stylus’s slim, highly polished profile allows for an exceedingly wide contact area with the record groove walls and ensures notably detailed reproduction throughout the spectrum, including even the highest frequencies. The use of an extremely stiff and lightweight Boron cantilever adds remarkable transparency, speed, and responsiveness to the sound.

2M BLACK LVB 250 BODY

To attain an optimal interaction between compliance and damping, a new rubber compound for the suspension system has been developed. The new rubber compound formula is based on the Multi Wall Carbon Nano Tubes (MWCNT) highly efficient nanofiller. The MWCNT powder is applied in a rubber polymer matrix and not in a powdered form, which makes the production process cleaner, non-polluting and energy-saving.

2M BLACK LVB 250 SOUND

The 2M Black LVB 250 builds on the concept of the original 2M Black cartridge design to take one step further toward a truly high-end sound. Redefining what is possible from a moving magnet (MM) cartridge, the 2M Black LVB 250 is truly an exercise in technical excellence.
