Performance That Belies Its Affordable Cost, Easy Plug-and-Play Setup, Accurate Tracking, Quiet Operation: Ortofon 2M PNP MkII Blue Phono Cartridge Digs Deep into Vinyl LP Grooves

You'll never feel blue about how your vinyl LPs sound when you have the Ortofon 2M PNP MkII Blue MM phono cartridge in your analog chain. Featuring a new, lightweight "plug n' play" headshell that allows for direct and easy mounting on any tonearm, 2M PNP Blue MM represents a few sonic steps up from its revered sibling, Red. It outputs a powerful 5.5mV and employs a highly polished nude-elliptical stylus for stellar tracking and quieter reproduction of information it pulls from your records' grooves. Ortofon's trademark split pole pins, which enable MM cartridges to have flat frequency response just like MC designs, aid in performance that surpasses that of the older, costlier Ortofon OM-30.

2M Series is designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Ortofon's philosophy is to make cartridges that reproduce the record grooves as accurately as possible, without coloring the sound. 2M Series is optimized for ease of mounting. Its weight and size fit virtually any turntable.

Developed in conjunction with Danish designer Møller Jensen Design – the same designer who created Ortofon's award-winning MC Jubilee and successful Kontrapunkt Series – 2M Series is inspired by the facets of a diamond, whose contours gracefully trace the grooves on a record's surface, 2M's handsome elegance establishes a great combination of form and functionality.
