So long as you remember that the arm will need to be rebalanced and tracking weight reset each time you change over between different types of cartridge. You may even want to adjust VTA between uses of cartridges of different depth. It's not just 'plug 'n go' but maybe you know this already.
Actually it is a plug and play deck if you have spare head shells, the deck has a VTA adjuster at the base of the arm and is very simple to use, also it doesn't take long to change between cartridges once they are set up first of course. I used to have a SL1210 with a few spare head shells and would play around with different cartridges depending on the condition of some of my records, usually only took a couple of minutes to change between one or the other. The main cartridge i used for critical listening and the one i still use today is the Denon DL110, great cartridge so the 160 will sound very nice on your Technics.
Yes always some work initially with the cartridges and head shells alignment but of course resetting of tracking weight bias and VTA only takes a minute once the cartridges have been aligned in the head shells so yes i agree for those not familiar with TT set up it's simply not plug and go but for you and i we have a bit more experience but i'm still learning. By the way what protractor did you use for your Ortofon as i may have a tip for you.
as Chebby mentioned earlier, the Vinyl Engine. It's a great source for all things analogue and a whole lot more. They have down loadable protractors to suit your arm and cartridge and TT. Well worth a visit.
