  • The SPU Royal N provides the same sound reproduction properties as the SPU Royal GM series

    - The addition of Ortofon s unique Replicant 100 stylus and reduced tip mass ensures open and detailed sound reproduction for a purely exquisite listening experience.
    - Electrum coils, consisting of a gold and silver alloy, provides uncolored and precise transmission of armature movements while the slightly modified damping system makes it possible to reduce VTF and achieves a higher level of linearity.
    - High purity 6-nines copper wiring ensures impeccable signal transmission and preservation of the finest of microdynamic detail.

    The SPU Royal N is sold without the integrated headshell unit.

    Listeners who wish to mount the SPU Royal N on a traditional headshell may do so by using SPU N adaptor. Those with vintage SPU-type headshells can use the Royal N to recreate an authentic and functional SPU cartridge. NB: Vintage SPU-type headshells are no longer available.
