In the wake of the success of the 2M range, Ortofon has developed the new 2M 78 cartridge.

Ortofon 2M 78 T: features

This cartridge, specifically engineered for 78 rpm records, typically features a monophonic motor and a spherical stylus perfectly suitable for Shellacs.

The stylus has a specific profile, giving it an optimum tracking angle for larger grooves on 78 rpm records.

The outputs deliver a monophonic signal which makes it possible to eliminate phono preamps with a similar position.

Ortofon 2M 78 T: listening and review

The sound is punchy, with a lot of detail and, above all, it does justice to the original recording.

The Ortofon 2M 78 T cartridge is certainly one of the very best 78 rpm cartridges around. Would recommend!

LA cellule pour les vieux disque

Comme pour la 2M Bronze acheté en même temp le raport prix/prestation est très bon.
Mes 78t sonnent enfin correctement (et sont au final en bon état), bref pour un disque Mono la cellule mono ça change tout.
Et celle là est très bonne dans cet exercice.
Petit bémol il me faut regler le poids plus dans la limite haute pour avoir un bon son.
Mais j'ai pas encore assez de recul sur ce point.
