BANG & OLUFSEN SP-10 SP 10 SP10 PHONO CARTRIDGE
The Bang & Olufsen SP-10 SP 10 SP10 pick up cartridge is a low impedance moving iron phono cartridge for high fidelity reproduction of stereo and mono records.
The cartridge is fitted with a highly polished naked diamond stylus mounted directly in a low mass cantilever to give very low effective tip mass. The moving parts are critically damped and this factor along with a high compliance allows very low stylus pressure to be used for reproduction.
A symmetrical micro-cross armature picks up signals from the record with excellent separation and the balanced push-pull magnetic circuit and pick-up coils ensure very low distortion and cancellation of external magnetic fields resulting in very low hum pickup.
The Bang & Olufsen SP-10 pick up cartridge Type 8905424 comes complete with a spherical naked diamond stylus in a metal can. It is our last one. This is not new but practically so. We used it once for less than an hour to test a B&O turntable about 20 years ago, then uninstalled and boxed it. We found it again after all these years. It comes complete with manual, stylus cover and plastic box. It is a very rare find. We have not seen one in over a decade.
