    ...One sophisticated and musical cartridge - for the price of a nice dinner for two.

    - Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound


    2M are designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Our philosophy is to play the record sound as accurate as possible, without coloring the sound. We have optimized the design for ease of mounting the cartridge, weight and size to fit the most common turntables at the market today.


    The name 2M was selected among several ideas. We wanted a modern name that would be easy to pronounce and to remember, and therefore an alpha numerical name was chosen. 2M means MM, which is the abbreviation for moving magnet.


    Of course the 2M isn't just another pretty face. It has been engineered to the highest standards and is congruent with the unrelenting commitment of Ortofon to provide the most precise and accurate reproduction possible without coloration.


    The 2M series of cartridges feature Ortofon's trademark split pole pins, an invention that enables moving magnet cartridges to have a flat frequency response, as with a moving coil cartridge. Split pole pins were invented by Ortofon, and were originally presented in the 500 series and Super OM series.


    The 2M Red uses an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV.


    2M Red features a tipped elliptical diamond.

    High Purity (6N) Copper Cable, RCA-to-RCA


    The low signals from the cartridge are very sensitive to electromagnetic induced noise from the outside world. Things like mobile phones and home appliances challenge the tonearm cable. With this focus, Ortofon engineers have made a cable comprised of 7 cores 5N/6N OFC with a tight shield surrounding the cores for optimum shielding against electrical radiated noise.


    The 6NX TSW-1010 R (RCA to RCA) is the ideal solution for connecting the MC Transformer and Phono pre-amplifier.

    Ortofon Stereo Test Record

    Ortofon's new Test Record is designed to allow you to verify your HiFi system in the most natural audio surroundings at home. The Test Record contains special test signals developed for analyzing cartridge performance as well as its interaction with your tonearm and turntable.


    Before testing your cartridge, please verify the HiFi system's functionality. The left speaker should be connected to the left amplifier channel and vice versa; both speakers should work in phase and be optimally positioned in the room.
    The Test Record is designed to be played through your system with in-built RIAA equalization. Volume control is recommended to be set at a moderate signal level.


    Please refer to your turntable and tonearm's instructions for correct installation and alignment, adjust tonearm to be parallel to record surface, set Vertical Tracking Force and antiskating according to the cartridge's recommended technical data, and adjust stylus overhang.

    Each side of the record consists of 15 tracks which have been cut from 1-4 and 5-15:


    1. Frequency Sweep Left Channel 800 Hz - 50 kHz. Log. 28 sec. Linear cut* (800 - 20000 Hz ±1,5 dB)
    2. Frequency Sweep Right Channel 800 Hz - 50 kHz. Log. 28 sec. Linear cut* (800 - 20000 Hz ±1,5 dB)
    3. Frequency Sweep Left Channel 800 Hz - 50 kHz. Log. 28 sec. Linear cut* (800 - 20000 Hz ±1,5 dB)
    4. Frequency Sweep Right Channel 800 Hz - 50 kHz. Log. 28 sec. Linear cut* (800 - 20000 Hz ±1,5 dB)
    5. Reference tone 1000 Hz 5 cm/sec rms Left
    6. Reference tone 1000 Hz 5 cm/sec rms Right
    7. Reference tone 1000 Hz 5 cm/sec rms Left
    8. Reference tone 1000 Hz 5 cm/sec rms Right
    9. Tracking ability, lateral 50 m peak
    10. Tracking ability, lateral 60 m peak
    11. Tracking ability, lateral 70 m peak
    12. Tracking ability, lateral 80 m peak
    13. Tracking ability, lateral 90 m peak
    14. Tracking ability, lateral 100 m peak
    15. Square Wave Form 2.7 msec duty cycle 3:7
    * The record has a constant velocity amplitude throughout the sweep.


    1-4 Frequency sweep - a tool for checking frequency response
    There are several factors which can affect frequency response, including cable capacitance, cartridge loading, tracking force and worn parts. Because of this, it can be difficult to achieve perfectly flat frequency response. Sometimes by making small compromises in the cartridge loading, a better overall frequency response can be achieved. Considering the above the signal must be clean throughout the sweep.


    5-8 Reference tone for testing channel output
    With this standard reference signal is it possible to check the correctness of the connections of the left and right channels, channel balance and speed of the turntable.


    9 -14 Tracking ability test, 315 Hz lateral modulation
    These tracks contain a 315 Hz signal, recorded at increasing pick amplitudes of 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 and 100 micrometers. Please refer to your cartridge's tracking ability value specified in the technical data sheet. Your cartridge should be able to track the actual level without audible distortion. Inability to track can be heard as a departure from a pure tone or a sputtering and intermittent tone. To determine if it is one or both channels, the balance control can be utilized. In case of differing tracking ability in the left and right channels it is probably necessary to readjust the anti-skating correction of the tonearm. If both channels fail to track properly, then vertical tracking force should be increased until no further improvement of tracking force can be obtained.


    15. Square Wave Form 2.7 msec duty cycle 3:7
    When monitoring the output of your cartridge with an oscilloscope you'll then see a square wave located precisely above each other if the connection from the cartridge is correct.


    After successful completion of the above test procedures, you can ensure that your cartridge is optimized. Still the human ear is very sensitive to difference in tone distortion; its level depends on the stylus condition and record wear.

    Performance priced right


    A turntable should be reliable and easy to use, but most importantly it should sound great. High-performance tables can be prohibitively expensive, and budget tables too often sacrifice quality for unnecessary features. So we set out to build a turntable that outperforms its price tag.


    By redesigning classic audiophile components and leaving out nonessentials, we created a remarkably simple table that provides warm and detailed sound. Easy to setup and use, the Orbit delivers a dynamic and distortion-free listening experience.


    A quiet revolution


    The Orbit's low voltage AC synchronous motor provides excellent speed consistency and minimizes pitch variation (wow & flutter). The motor is decoupled from the plinth by a unique rubber suspension that prevents unwanted vibrations from seeping into the sound.


    The Orbit's CNC machined pulley turns an exposed drive belt and plays both 33 1/3 and 45 RPM records. The platter rides on an inverted main bearing - providing superior stability and reduced bearing noise (rumble). In other words, all you hear is the music on your record.


    A perfectly balanced tonearm


    The tonearm is the crucial link between your record and your speakers. To do its job well, it must achieve harmony between tracking force, mass distribution, and rigidity. The Orbit's innovative unipivot arm turns effortlessly on an inverted pyramid of precision ball bearings, and works with the arm's low center of mass to provide accurate tracking.


    Every Orbit comes pre-fitted with an Ortofon OM 5E moving magnet (MM) cartridge, which is balanced by an adjustable stainless steel counterweight.


    Take it for a spin


    The Orbit is ready to play out of the box. Cartridges come pre-installed with tracking force properly adjusted, so all you have to do is turn the table on and lower the arm. A dust cover, felt mat, and RCA cables are all included with every table. Check out the Orbit Basic or Plus, or you can use our Orbit customization tool to select your own color, platter, cartridge, preamp, and add-ons. Parts are interchangeable so you can upgrade down the line and tailor your turntable to your needs.


    Made with love in Boston


    Every Orbit is assembled by hand in our Woburn, Massachusetts workshop. Prior to shipping, each turntable goes through comprehensive listening, wow & flutter, and rumble tests, as well as a 15-point performance evaluation. Every Orbit comes with a one year warranty.


    The vast majority of our parts are sourced within the US. Our acrylic platters are turned in Ohio. Our plinths come from Minnesota, and our metal parts from Connecticut. By keeping our suppliers close and our assembly in-house, we are able to maintain a high level of quality.

    It also uses the WRD (Wide Range Damping-system), controlling the high and low frequency damping separately.

    Replacing the multi award winning and five times What Hi-Fi? Product of the Year (RP3) was never going to be an easy task. It took a team of designers headed up by Rega's Roy Gandy, two years to develop the all new 'Planar 3' following the biggest re-design of the iconic 'three' model ever seen.


    The Rega team has worked tirelessly to improve every aspect of this turntable offering improved ergonomics, usability and first and foremost, sonic performance.The new 'Planar 3' is truly a new turntable for 2016 carrying over just two components from the previous model.


    New features of the Planar Three:


    RB330 tonearm - Designed using the latest 3D CAD & CAM technology, the new RB330 is the culmination of more than 35 years of tonearm design experience. Featuring a brand new bearing housing, and our latest tonearm tube designed using intelligent redistribution of mass ensure this arm will exhibit fewer points of possible resonance. Extreme stability with almost friction free movement from the new high precision bearing assemblies guarantees to gather more information from your vinyl than ever before.


    • Featuring a new bias assembly, re-designed stiffer vertical bearing housing, integrated
      arm clip and an improved spring housing with easier to read numbers.
    • Rega made, new low capacitance phono cable with Neutrik plugs,
    • Improved lower friction, precision horizontal and vertical bearings
    • New design 100g mild steel balance weight.


    Plinth - High gloss acrylic, laminated plinth, stiffer and vastly improved appearance, ergonomically positioned power switch.Two plinth finishes at launch: gloss black & gloss white


    Double braces - Improved thicker 3mm phenolic bottom brace and new metalised skin phenolic top brace.


    Bearing housing - Re-designed brass main hub central bearing, improved fit and construction reducing stress on the bearing itself.


    Sub platter - Re-designed sub platter, improved accuracy and improved stiffness.


    Platter - New float glass 'Optiwhite' polished rim 12mm - Improved accuracy in manufacture and stunning looks.


    Re-designed foot - New improved foot to increase stability and reduce vibration transfer.


    24V motor - Improved new motor control PCB with integration for the addition of TT-PSU for electronic speed change and improved advanced anti-vibration circuit (sold separately).


    Motor cover tray with integrated cooling.


    DB Technology (Double Brace Technology)

    Mass absorbs energy - lost energy equals lost music!


    Rega has pioneered the use of lightweight rigid plinths. Clever use of lightweight particulate core with a highly rigid phenolic resin skin became the foundations of the high level of performance achieved by the now iconic original Planar range.


    The new Planar 3 takes this design philosophy to the next level. A lightweight acrylic laminated plinth strengthened using a new improved double brace system mounted specifically where the increased rigidity is required (between the tonearm mounting and the main hub bearing) which forms a structurally sound stressed beam assembly. This rigid plinth design prevents energy absorption and unwanted resonance, which will add unnatural distortions to the music.


    Equally, heavier mass can transfer more unwanted energy, such as motor or bearing noise directly into the rotating record. The use of braces instead of the complete skin allows double thickness phenolic resin in these key areas while providing further weight reduction to the plinth which directly addresses the issue of mass absorption and unwanted energy transmission.

    Cartridge Alignment Tool/Cartridge Protractor


    An alignment protractor is used to find the correct distance from stylus tip to tonearm pivot.


    When aligning a cartridge for tangency using the alignment protractor, it is essential to remember that you are attempting to align the cantilever (and, hence, the stylus), not the cartridge body. There is no guarantee that the cantilever is perfectly aligned within the cartridge body, so simply aligning the cartridge body will not necessarily produce the desired result.


    Furthermore, many cartridge bodies have non-parallel sides, making tangential alignment of the cartridge body with the lines of tangency on the gauge virtually impossible.


    An alignment protractor is a plastic template onto which are printed the null point(s) and lines of tangency against which the cartridge should be aligned. The template is placed over the turntable's spindle (made possible via a spindle-sized hole drilled in the template) and placed against the platter.


    Cartridge must be adjusted until the cantilever is parallel to the set of parallel lines. And this should be achieved for both the indicated points. When the cartridge's longitudinal axis is parallel with the horizontal lines, tracking error will be at a minimum.

    Replacement Stylus For The Ortofon 2M Red


    2M are designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Our philosophy is to play the record sound as accurate as possible, without coloring the sound. We have optimized the design for ease of mounting the cartridge, weight and size to fit the most common turntables at the market today.


    The name 2M was selected among several ideas. We wanted a modern name that would be easy to pronounce and to remember, and therefore an alpha numerical name was chosen. 2M means MM, which is the abbreviation for moving magnet.


    Of course the 2M isn't just another pretty face. It has been engineered to the highest standards and is congruent with the unrelenting commitment of Ortofon to provide the most precise and accurate reproduction possible without coloration.


    The 2M series of cartridges feature Ortofon's trademark split pole pins, an invention that enables moving magnet cartridges to have a flat frequency response, as with a moving coil cartridge. Split pole pins were invented by Ortofon, and were originally presented in the 500 series and Super OM series.


    The 2M Red uses an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV.


    2M Red features a tipped elliptical diamond.
