SPU Meister



The new features for this cartridge, again fully respecting the original concept, involved a wooden box of noble tree – a dedication from Mr. Gudmandsen to the owner of the cartridge. An important new technical data was a raise in output of about 75%, by introducing the Neodymium magnetic circuit. Further the very pure 7-Nines copper was now used for the armature windings.

A key SPU feature is an integrated headshell, designed to mount directly into classic tonearms with detachable headshells – tonearms such as the SME 3009 and 3012, and other tonearms with similar “universal” tonearm mounts. Quite simply, there is no finer complement to a classic tonearm with a detachable headshell than an Ortofon SPU.

SPU Meister features Mr. Robert Gudmandsen signature printed in both A and G-models.
