Description

The 2M Red is the low-end of this new and already famous 2M range of the Danish constructor. This range was designed in partnership with the Moller Jensen Design agency, which has developed other high-end products such as the Ortofon Mc Jubilee and Kontrapunkt cartridges!

All the models in this series (4 in total) feature a magnetic system that comprises a divided magnet. This is not really a new technology as Ortofon invented it and already proposed it on the 500 models, but here it has been specially improved and optimised, noticeably reducing the distortion and particularly improving the linearity and extent of the frequency response especially in the treble which is often the weakness of moving magnet cartridges. The intention of the manufacturer was clearly to propose a moving magnet cartridge with performances close to the ones achieved by a moving coil. The very high quality stylus has an elliptical profile.

The dynamic range is outstanding, the top of the spectrum is highly defined with no sharpness, the bass is not the deepest there is but has the advantage of being expressive and precise. The entire sound quality is incredibly consistent.

We can confirm that this cartridge is set to become a benchmark in its range, and a classic. It also opens a lot more doors in terms of upgrades and can be equipped with a 2M Blue stylus. Many manufacturers have already taken it on as a standard fitting in their own turntables! Would recommend!

La renaissance de ma platine

Cette cellule a fait revivre ma platine et j'ai redécouvert mes Vinyle. Très bonne présence dans les medium et des basses pas trop présentes. Le capuchon de protection est un peut technique à remettre, mais une fois le coup de main pris aucun problème. Superbe emballage très pro et expédition en moins de 2 jours. Bravo pour votre professionnalisme et la qualité de vos services.

trés bon rapport qualité prix

J'ai cette cellule depuis 3 mois maintenant et j'en suis très satisfait.
J'hésitais avec la goldring elektra ou la grado blue, et sur les conseils des techniciens du site, ils m'ont conseillé cette merveilleuse cellule pour ma vieille technics sl 22.
Un très bon rapport qualité prix.
Un grand merci au site maplatine .com pour leurs conseils, leur efficacité et leur gentillesse.
