Stereo Ceramic Cartridge

Connoisseur SCU 1


The Connoisseur SCU 1 will satisfy the most discerning audiophile.

Examination of the specification and response graphs will confirm our claim but it is the listening test which is most revealing.

The channel separation is well maintained to both ends of the frequency spectrum resulting in a well defined stereo image in correct perspective.

The high compliance and low mass of the stylus system in conjunction with a well designed arm allow extremely low downward pressure to be accomplished giving improved performance and reduced record wear.

We unreservedly claim this to be one of the best stereo cartridges available today.
