Ortofon is a Danish manufacturer of high-quality phono cartridges, designed to get the very most out of your vinyl collection from a variety of price points. Ortofon cartridges, both Moving Magnet and Moving Coil configuration are commonly found supplied with high-quality ProJect turntable models, but Ortofon cartridges sound exceptional with any compatible turntable.

The SPU Synergy GM modernizes the classic SPU design with a number of optimizations designed for optimum compatibility and sonic purity. The SPU Synergy features a wood-based housing and has a revised generator system which allows for a maximum output of 500µV, relaxing the requirement for a high gain transformer or active preamplification systems. While still making use of a highly polished Nude Elliptical stylus, the stylus tip mass has been reduced significantly, resulting in reduced VTF and higher tracking ability.
