Ortofon 2M Mk II Blue Plug in and Play Cartridge has been optimized for ease of mounting and its weight and size are perfect to fit the most common turntables on the market today. Ortofons Plug in and Play 2M Series cartridges are a practical and elegant solution for our customers who wish direct and easy mounting and replacement on their tonearm. The combination of 2M Headshell and 2M Series cartridge adds unique distinction to the turntable!

The 2M series of cartridges feature Ortofon’s trademark split pole pins, an invention which 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 to great effect.

Ortofon have optimized the design of 2M series for ease of mounting the cartridge, weight and size to fit the most common turntables at the market today. 2M Series provides excellent compatibility in an assortment of playback systems and with a wide variety of phono preamps. The 2M Red and 2M Blue also have interchangeable stylus units, and replacement styli are readily available in the UK.
