Ortofon's new 'Plug and Play' range builds on 2M cartridge features.

Ortofon 2M 78 PNP: features

The distinctive feature of the PNP series is that the cartridge comes directly mounted to an exclusive headshell!

It is cast in a composite material stemming from the medical industry. It makes the cartridge very rigid and, above all, wards off any vibration and colouration.

Naturally, it has retained all the features of the original 2M 78 cartridge.

Ortofon 2M 78 PNP: compatibility

This PNP mounting style is perfectly compatible with Ortofon and SME tonearms, as well as with most 'S' shaped tonearms, which have a removable headshell.

Ortofon 2M 78 PNP: assembly

On delivery you only need to insert the Ortofon 2M 78 PNP cartridge into the tonearm of your turntable - provided it is compatible - and adjust the tracking force and antiskating.
