This is a Special Order item.

Due to circumstances relating to this product, it is only available in the UK to special order, which means it is not stocked as standard in our warehouse. A special order item will be placed on order with the relevant manufacturer during our next scheduled Purchase Order. As we forecast orders up to two months ahead of time with some suppliers, this does not mean the item will automatically be included on the next shipment we receive. It also does not mean that the item will immediately be placed on order with the supplier, as we group special orders together for logistical purposes. Therefore, we estimate lead times on most special order items of 8 – 12 weeks.

SPUs

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.

Key Features:

  • Dynamic and powerful sound reproduction
  • Perfect for the playback of both early and modern and contemporary stereo recordings
  • Detailed sound reproduction and expansive imaging
  • High Purity Copper armature windings and terminal leads
  • Nude Elliptical stylus profile
