Product Description

Ortofon Mono CG 65 MkII is an SPU-style Moving Coil (MC) type cartridge, specifically for reproducing early 78rpm and 65µm mono recordings. The CG 65 MkII uses a spherical stylus which results in a highly authentic method for the playback of early vinyl recordings, resulting in a remarkable level of sound accuracy, irrespective of the materials used to construct the record. The cartridge features a 1.5mV output, which makes it suitable for use with a variety of medium-gain moving coil transformers.

SPU style cartridges are designed to fit onto old style tonearms which accept these type of cartridges and are not designed for use on most modern tonearms and turntables. If you are in doubt, please contact us before ordering for expert advice.
