A Briefing on Ortofon's SPU Cartridges

Ortofon’s SPU cartridges continue the tradition of the first ever Moving Coil cartridges as originally engineered by Mr. Robert Gudmandsen and produced by Ortofon in the late 1950s. Praised for their refined linearity and full body, these cartridges have remained a favorite throughout the years, both for modern and vintage high-end applications. The latest incarnation of SPU cartridges feature a wood-based integrated headshell to further reduce resonance and provide an authentic and attractive aesthetic.

Details on the Ortofon SPU Classic N E

The SPU Classic N E provides the same sound reproduction properties as the SPU Classic GM E series, but is sold without the integrated headshell unit. The SPU Classic N is a Moving Coil (MC) cartridge with an elliptical stylus profile and provides more detailed sound reproduction and expansive imaging. Listeners who wish to mount the SPU Classic on a traditional headshell may do so, and those with vintage SPU-type headshells can use the Classic N E to recreate an authentic and functional SPU cartridge.
