    The SPU Classic NE is sold without the integrated headshell unit.


    The SPU Classic NE is a Moving Coil (MC) cartridge with an elliptical stylus profile and provides more detailed sound reproduction and expansive imaging.


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