Once you have the information you need, we want to make the purchase process as simple as possible. So we give you up-to three options on how to buy our products.
Our preferred option is for you to visit a nearby store and buy what you need locally.

To find your local retailer, either click the 'Buy In-Store' button on your product page for exactly the right recommendation, or head to our comprehensive Where To Buy tool.
If you want the added convenience of only having to pop-in to store when you know the product you want has arrived, you can use our Click & Collect-style checkout process. With Buy Now, Collect Locally, your purchase takes place online and the product is then delivered direct to your local supporting retailer; ready for you to collect when you're ready.

The 2M Series of cartridges from Ortofon have been designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Indeed, it is Ortofon's lasting philosophy to only ever play the recorded sound, without colouration. The pre-existing range of 2M cartridges have rapidly been established as a reference point for all good moving magnet cartridges. From the introductory Red, through to the high-end Black; 2M is now a go-to name in moving magnet technology. 2012 sees Ortofon open up new markets within the same design principle of 2M. The 2M 78 and 2M Mono offer users of older, rare vinyl a higher-quality playback medium than had previously been available.
The 2M 78 features an improved True Mono engine, which provides a high level of sonic accuracy, as well as expertly cut Spherical diamond that is perfect for playback of 78 rpm records (which require a larger stylus profile).
The 2M series of cartridges are now also available in a special version, suited for bottom-mount tonearms. The 2M Verso are available to special order in the UK. If you'd like to order one, please call our offices on 01235 511 166 to find out more.
