Ortofon Mono GM Mk II

Product Code: ORC101


ex-vat: £ 604.17

The Ortofon SPU Mono GM Mk II is designed with an integral headshell for use in tonearms that accept detachable headshells. It is intended for the playback of mono LPs.

The SPU Mono is designed for use in “universal” bayonet-mount SME-style tonearms (like the SME 3009 or 3012, Thomas Schick, and many others). It is a high-output moving-coil design, ideally matched with most standard moving-magnet phono stages (phono stages with 47 kOhm inputs).

This classic cartridge brings mono recordings to life, yielding a full, palpable, sonorous sound.  You won’t miss stereo at all.

This is a special-order product, usually shipping within four weeks of order.
