Ortofon 2M Bronze PNP Mk 2

The new PNP Mk2 versions are lighter than the original PNPs. They can be used on the Technics 1200 without the auxiliary weight. Also a good match for the similar current Audio Technica and Pioneer tonearms

    I recently purchased this cartridge from Needledoctor, even though I had previously read in a review that the cartridge/shell combination creates a hum in the system. I was expecting this drawback was an isolated case for a particular reviewer. The person posting the complaint indicated that replacing the shell corrected the problem. Unfortunately, I have the same problem with my new cartridge. I hate to have to replace the shell for an standard type, since the tailor shaped shell looks great.
