The SPU Royal G model was released in 1998 to celebrate the Ortofon 80 year anniversary


The SPU Royal G MkII provides a playback experience that embodies the essence of analog with generous refinements which bring the legendary SPU cartridges into the realm of unrivaled perfection.


A purely exquisite listening experience


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, provide 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.
