MMC2 Type Moving Coil Cartridge for Bang and Olufson
The MMC2 is near top of the line. See related products below for cheaper solutions for your Beogram.
B&Os proprietary cartridge mounting system does indeed obligate you to use their cartridge solutions but that is a good for your ears (if not your wallet).The MMC2 is a functional replacement for the MMC1 MMC3 MMC4 and MMC5 (MMC1 is top of the line, MMC5 is bottom.) The needle on your existing cartridge is not user replaceable. Keep your old one in case you ever want the tip replaced someday at about 2/3rds the cost of a new one.
