CAPSULE MC ORTOFON SPU CLASSIC GM E MKII
A variant of the SPU Classic GM mkII equipped with an elliptical Nude stylus designed by Ortofon, the SPU Classic GM E mkII is a moving coil pickup cartridge equipped with the characteristic SPU design that allows access to the special sonic magic of this very veteran transducer concept by moderately priced. Of the SPU it would have to be said that when it was launched in 1958 it offered a type of sound superior to that of any other phono cartridge on the market for the simple reason that its design was far above that of its competitors. Even today, more than half a century later, the SPU continues to deliver a sound that definitely has its own personality and continues to enjoy great popularity among audio purists who have a special appreciation for “vintage” components. From a technical point of view, the SPU Classic E mkII is based on an evolved version of the two key innovations that the SPU provided at the time: a signal generator system composed of two low impedance coils and the use, in the windings of said coils, of extremely thin copper conductors, to which is added the arrangement of said coils in such a way that the two walls of the micro groove of a stereophonic disc generate two discrete signals with a maximum channel separation. As a result, the SPU Classic GM E mkII offers what was known at the time as the “Ortofon sound”, characterized by rich bass and transparent highs, coupled with a series of qualities that are difficult to define but are easy to define. to appreciate once they are perceived. A true classic in audio history.
