The Ortofon Xpression fuses SLM materials tech from MC A90, generator system from MC A90 and Ortofon design tradition. This new product bridges the gap between SPU-type and High-End cartridges, with the added convenience of a standard headshell connector and one-piece body. The Xpression also has the same height as the SPU cartridges, making VTA adjustments unneeded. The cartridge length ensures a proper fit with SME-mount tonearms and any SPU-compatible arm. For optimal performance, pair it with TA-110/TA-210 tonearms and ST-80 SE MC transformer.
