Product Description

Ortofon Meister Silver GM II SPU Phono Cartridge has been improved on coil winding material, stylus and magnet.

Original Meister

The SPU Meister cartridge, fully respecting the original concept, added a wooden box of noble tree. Vitally, it was raised in output by about 75% by introducing the Neodymium magnetic circuit. The very pure 7-Nines copper was used for the armature windings. The masterpiece of Mr.Robert Gudmandsen, the SPU Meister Silver boasted the purest silver wire ever produced for coil winding process.

SPU Series

New possibilities in regards to housing materials, diamonds and magnetic & damping systems have been employed to improve the SPU and its performance, whilst at the same time remaining faithful to the original concept. The original design, as well as the original elements in the construction of the magnetic circuit are kept fully intact.

A key SPU feature is an integrated headshell, designed to mount directly into classic tonearms with detachable headshells. There is no finer compliment to a classic tonearm with a detachable headshell than an Ortofon SPU. It has a sound that is definitely its own and it enjoys a remarkable following - in particular among audiophiles whose systems are comprised of vintage valve equipment and horn or reflex speakers.


The SPU Meister Silver GM MkII has been outfitted with high purity multi-conductor 6–nines Silver wire (of a purity of 99.9999%) for a more open and revealing high-end presentation. The Nude Elliptical stylus tip mass has been decreased by a factor of more than 50%, resulting in increased tracking ability and reproduction of microdynamic detail. The generator system has been revised to produce a slightly higher output to ensure compatibility with a wider range of moving coil transformers and active MC preamplifiers.


All SPU-cartridges are designed to bring optimum performance, when the tonearm mounted with the cartridge is adjusted parallel to the record surface, at recommended tracking force. When an antiskating adjustment is possible, Ortofon recommends a 50% higher value, when using SPU-cartridges with the Ortofon Replicant stylus, compared to normal setting at recommended tracking force.
