ex-vat: £ 1,290.83

The Ortofon SPU Synergy GM is designed for use in universal-style bayonet-mount tonearms with detachable headshells (like the SME 3009 or 3012, and many others). It features a highly polished nude elliptical stylus and coils made from gold-plated silver wire. There is another version of the Synergy, the Synergy A, for use with Ortofon-style tonearms.

The Ortofon SPU range virtually defines classic vinyl playback. If you’re lucky enough to own a universal-style bayonet-mount tonearm, you owe it to your records to add an Ortofon SPU cartridge.
