Features:

  • an improved engine, which provides a high level of sonic accuracy
  • R 18µm Nude Spherical diamond that is an optimal solution for playing mono microgroove LP vinyl records

2M Mono uses a strapped output to deliver the same output signal from both sets of pole pins. This effectively eliminates the need for mono-specific equipment, making it possible to enjoy true mono reproduction on any stereo playback system.

The 2M Series provides excellent compatibility when used in an assortment of playback systems and with a wide variety of phono preamps.
