The Mono CG 65 DI MKII is an SPU-style Moving Coil (MC) cartridge with a spherical stylus profile, for the playback of early 65µm mono and 78rpm recordings.
The CG 65 DI MKII provides an authentic method of playing back these early recordings with a remarkable level of sonic accuracy, regardless of the materials used to manufacture these discs.
This cartridge features a 1.5mV output, which makes it suitable for use with a variety of medium-gain moving coil transformers.

Ortofon’s SPU cartridges continue the tradition of the first ever Moving Coil cartridges as originally engineered by Mr. Robert Gudmandsen and produced by Ortofon in the late 1950s. Praised for their refined linearity and full body, these cartridges have remained a favourite throughout the years, both for modern and vintage high-end applications. This year we decided to give our SPU fans around the world an opportunity to get a collection of the four most famous SPUs, each of them being a very special collector's item.
