Ortofon 2m blue cartridge

Often confused as the needle, turntable cartridges actually convert vibrations from the needle into electrical signals, which are amplified and fed back to us through our speakers. So, this is where all the magic begins. These days there are two main types of cartridge: moving magnet (MM) and moving coil (MC).  Moving magnet cartridges are the most common form of cartridge. They allow you to replace the stylus and are suitable for any stereo phono stage. The Moving Coil cartridge, on the other hand, is a lighter weight cartridge. This allows for better tracking and provides a more accurate reproduction. Most audiophiles suggest MC cartridges have a warmer, more dynamic sound.
