Ortofon SPU Gold
SPU Gold is a deluxe version of SPU legendary cartridges designed on Ortofon's patented moving coil principle. However in the development of SPU Gold we sought to maintain as much as possible of the original SPU construction while at the same time making a few important modifications:
- incorporation of a new True Elliptical diamond stylus
- the use of silver wire for the coil windings and the entire arrangement of leads
- more secured method of mounting of the headshell
It doesn't take a connoisseur to appreciate why SPU Gold has been so named: the cartridge body, cantilever, plug and finger lift have been plated with 24 carat gold.
