Ortofon SPU Classic N Moving Coil Cartridge Overview

With state-of-the-art features, the Ortofon SPU Classic N Moving Coil Cartridge brings a refreshing update to your how turntable needle reproduces sound. Featuring the same sound reproduction properties as the SPU Classic GM series, this phono cartridge employs an 18 micrometer spherical stylus to generate precise, high-quality record tracing. The SPU Classic N features High Purity copper wiring and a ground wood and resin body for good looks and quality components you can rely on. Embrace a contemporary performance level with a classic touch with SPU Classic Series cartridges ideal for playback of both early and contemporary stereo recordings. Using an SPU Classic N adaptor, listeners can mount the SPU Classic on a traditional headshell. (Note: the SPU Classic is sold separately from the integrated headshell unit.)
