Ortofon SPU ATR Celebration 40
Sometimes the best gifts are the ones you give yourself.
For our 40th anniversary we wanted an Ortofon cartridge and got the Ortofon SPU ATR Celebration 40! In the late 1950s, long-playing records appeared as a technical revolution, also in stereo. This new format brought real spatiality to music reproduction via loudspeakers for the first time: the stereo system was born. To sample the stereo LPs, the then studio equipment supplier Ortofon developed its still legendary MC pickup "Stereo Pick Up", or "SPU" for short, primarily for high-quality FM radio reproduction.
Generations of cartridges have come and gone since the introduction of the SPU in the late 1950s. The technical concept and sonic result of the original SPU, on the other hand, have remained untouched to this day and are the inspiration for the SPU ATR Celebration 40.
