Strictly Designed for Hi-Fi Playback of Old 78RPM Vinyl LPs: Ortofon 2M PNP 78 MM Phono Cartridge Features a Larger Stylus for Accurate Tracking and Sound, Easily Mounts on Any Tonearm

Break out your old 78s and hear them the way they were meant to be played with the Ortofon 2M PNP 78 MM phono cartridge. With an improved engine providing a high level of sonic accuracy and dynamic thrust, 2M PNP 78 will re-introduce you to some of your favorite older recordings. 78RPM records require a larger stylus profile for accurate playback, and 2M PNP 78's spherical diamond stylus ensure you won't miss a beat. Plus, a new, lightweight "plug n' play" headshell allows for direct and easy mounting on any tonearm.

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.
