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!


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.
