Suggestions for an SUT for Ortofon vintage MCs?

I've got a couple vintage Ortofon cartridges like an SL15 and an SPU and I'm looking for a SUT but I'd like to keep it in the $500 range if possible. Not ready to commit to the cost of the A23 SUT yet.

Thanks in advance!


Tell us what the output voltages and the impedance's of the carts are so we can make some suggestions.



Dear @dhcod  : With out doubt and almost at any price you can't do better than the Denon AU-340 that will works really fine with your cartridges and almost any vintage or today ones:


Regards and enjoy the MUSIC NOT DISTORTIONS,


Btw, there are many units on ebay, higly recomended and if you make an internal rewiring and change the input/output connectors for say WBT then your unit can't be outperformed.

Wow, that's an excellent price on that Denon AU-340! I use one for my Denon DL-103 carts and love it. Those high end Tamuri transformers can't be purchased bare at that price.



Dear @billwojo  : Yes, Tamura transformers are second to none. Today SUTs using Tamura transformers comes with an over 1K price tag.

The ones used in the AU-1000 were customer made and exclusively for Denon. The 1000 has a FR: 5hz-200khz and weigths over 12 kg. I still own it, this is really the State of the Art in SUTs. Nothing less.
