The Ortofon SPU Meister Silver GM Mk II, like all Ortofon SPU (Stereo Pick-Up) cartridges, is designed for use in “universal” bayonet-mount SME-style tonearms with detachable headshells (like the SME 3009 or 3012, Thomas Schick, and many others).

The SPU Meister Silver is the penultimate model in the stereo SPU range, and features a nude elliptical stylus. Coils are constructed of pure silver.

The Ortofon SPU range virtually defines classic vinyl playback.
