Ortofon SPU Synergy GM Moving Coil Cartridge Overview 

Redesigned for increased purity and power, the Ortofon SPU Synergy GM Moving Coil Cartridge opens new frontiers for connoisseurs of record player needles. Featuring a revised generator system that supports a high output of 0.5 mV, this Ortofon turntable cartridge expands the compatibilities between you and the world of record playback devices. The requirements of adaptability between gain transformers and active pre-amplification systems have been relaxed, delivering an optimized design for fans of playback. This record needle fits almost all popular brands, taking advantage of an ultra-polished, pristine Nude Elliptical stylus. Reducing the stylus mass significantly, Ortofon has produced a more precise way for turntable needles to detect the richest sound from a vast array of records, reducing skips and increasing tracking ability. The SPU Synergy is an impressive modernization of the classic SPU design.
