Syrinx PU2


Designed by Scott Strachan, the Syrinx PU2 features a fully adjustable sliding block in place of a conventional headshell arrangement.

The optional mass ring is a device which increases the lateral mass by 2.4g in the lateral plane.

This further separates the dual compliance mass resonance of the cartridge and arm which, with a very stiff cartridge, will help to reduce the overall magnitude of this resonance.


Effective length: 228mm

Overhang: 16.6mm

Offset angle: 23.4 degrees

Mounting distance: 211.4mm

Mounting hole: 30mm


Properly set up, many believed the Syrinx PU2 to be better than the Ittok, with a more unipivot-like sound that made vinyl sing like nothing before - HiFi World 2001

The PU2 did not need a 30 mm mounting hole: 10 mm is the correct diameter.
