Ortofon is proud to present the SPU A95 – a state of the art product representative of numerous Ortofon design elements and ideals to celebrate Ortofon’s 95 years of masterful analog research and technology.


Much like Robert Gudmandsen’s revolutionary ideas which originally brought the SPU cartridges to market in the 1960s, endless research and conceptual design was placed into the SPU 90th Anniversary and developed further in this very special SPU A95 model. The SPU A95 is built with the magnetic system applied in the predecessor SPU 90th Anniversary. This cartridge retains all of the characteristics that put its brethren in a class of their own, while at the same time expounding upon its strengths to provide reproduction of sound that is unsurpassed in its neutrality, detail, and dynamic range. Another special feature is the inclusion of the renowned Field Stabilizing Element (FSE) system, which consists of a small cylinder of conductive material placed strategically inside of the magnetic system. FSE guarantees that the force field within the system will remain stable at all times regardless of the movement of the armature. This technology was first introduced in the acclaimed Kontrapunkt series and later applied in the SPU 90th Anniversary, MC A90, Cadenza Bronze and Black and in the present top line cartridges, the MC Windfeld and Ortofon Xpression. What this means in practical application is that not only will FSE minimize dynamic and intermodulation distortion, but it will also allow for greater dynamics, absolute clarity, and depth of sound for truly awe-inspiring sonic performance.
