The SPU #1 S and SPU #1 E feature:
– Respectively Spherical and Elliptical stylus
– High Purity Copper armature windings and terminal leads
– Grinded wood and resin composite housing
NB: The SPU #1 E elliptical stylus profile provides more detailed sound reproduction and expansive imaging.
The SPU #1 models, with their universal connector, ensure the ability to mount the units in a wider range of tonearms with universal (SME) mount, e.g. Audio Creative GrooveMaster MKII gives a supreme experience.
With their linearity and full bodies, the SPU #1 models are a perfect solution for the playback of stereo recordings.
Sonically, the SPU #1 models are genuine SPUs, known for their full-bodied and powerful music image, minimum of intermodulation distortion and an impressive channel separation.
