"Plug n' Play" Headshell Further Enhances the Value of High-End Audio's Most Famous Budget Phono Cartridge: Ortofon 2M PNP MkII Red MM Touts 5.5mV Output and Elliptical Diamond Stylus

Featuring a new, lightweight "plug n' play" headshell that allows for direct and easy mounting on any tonearm, Ortofon's 2M PNP MkII Red MM phono cartridge continues a legacy that has made Red the high-end's best bang-for-the-buck cartridge. An update of Ortofon's best-selling OM Series of cartridges, 2M PNP Red touts 5.5mV output and an enhanced body, generator, and tipped elliptical diamond stylus to mine intoxicating sound from your records. Ortofon's trademark split pole pins, which enable MM cartridges to have flat frequency response just like MC designs, aid in its performance. Recommended by practically every significant audiophile press outlet around the globe, Red is a genuine analog legend.

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.
