Product Description

The 2M 78 features an improved engine, which provides a high level of sonic accuracy. It has a spherical diamond that is perfect for playback of 78 rpm shellac records, which require a larger stylus profile. The 2M 78 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.

You will get only genuine goods from the German distribution! The mounting screws are enclosed with the delivery.
