The Ortofon Concorde MKII DJ is a great cartridge for beginner and professional DJ's alike. It has great tracking ability along with a frequency range of 20 - 20,000 Hz. The frequency range is the range of frequencies that can be reproduced by the cartridge, so with a range this wide you'll be able to hear all the nuances of the music.

Deciding to finally stump up and invest in an Ortofon Concorde Mk2 DJ all in one shell/cartridge and the stylus was a great move. The cartridges slim form factor provides a definite advantage for cueing tracks over other 'box' varieties. Allowing easier placement of stylus in those darker than normal club environments. Build quality is good and the placement handle is at a useful angle. Sound quality through an FBT system is great and provided good dynamic range and stereo coverage. Overall a great buy if you want an integrated shell/cartridge, quality sound reproduction and stable groove riding performance.
