Syrinx PU3


Designed by Scott Strachan the Syrinx PU3 Ipsissima was developed from the earlier PU2 and had improved levels of engineering and finish.

The tonearm featured a cigar shaped arm tube with integral headshell in a massive gimbal bearing assembly.

The arm tube of the PU3 can be rotated in it's mount for cartridge azimuth adjustment.

A threaded counterweight is employed which can be locked in position.

Anti-skate is of the thread and falling weight type.

Syrinx have maintained a fully competitive standard with their PU-3 Ipsissima. In the right turntable - the Sondek is one example - the PU-3 can provide a first-rate sound quality, with the finish and most technical aspects of commensurate quality - £290 HiFi Choice 1984
