Ortofon 2M Premounted lifts user experience

Ortofon announces 2M Premounted. The Danish maker’s 2M Premounted is described as a practical and elegant solution for customers who wish direct and easy mounting and replacement on an S-shaped tonearm.

The SH-4 headshell has been created to be sturdy and rigid, yet the design accentuates a slim form factor. The strong, lightweight headshell has an ergonomic design with a long finger lift that is easy to pick up.

The Ortofon 2M series builds on its maker’s philosophy of accuracy in sound: this is the perfect range for those who want a premium phono cartridge of the highest quality, and the line can grow with the users as they develop their systems.

Henley Audio distributes the brand in the UK.
