Ortofon SPU Classic N Stereo Moving Coil Cartridge

The SPU Classic N is an SPU-style Moving Coil cartridge with a spherical stylus profile, for the playback of both early and modern stereo. Output is 0.2mV, so it needs to be played through a MC phono amplifier, or via a MC step up device or transformer, such as Ortofon's own ST-7 model. The SPU Classic N models provide the same sound reproduction properties as the SPU Classic GM series, in a package designed to be fitted to a conventional headshell, with the SPU N adapter, which is available separately at £45 including VAT.
