Don't be shy: I'm entertaining any reasonable offer!

I'm moving up the Ortofon SPU line, so this one needs a new home! 

A great SPU with all the lush midrange and slightly warm overall tonality one expects in an SPU, but with an elliptical profile diamond which adds precision and detail into the mix. I've really enjoyed this SPU, which is why I've decided to upgrade. I used it on a Bokrand 12" as well as an SME 3009 Serie 2 non-improved (needed an extra weight to handle the SPU's 30 gram mass, but it sounded awesome!). Not sure how many hours are on it, but I'm going to guess around 80. The stylus looks good, but I have no microscope to get close enough to judge. I take very good care of all my equipment, and this is no exception: in excellent condition, with it's stylus guard and box. Superb match with the ST-7 step-up transformer I've also listed.

The SPU headshell is made from a ground wood and resin composite, and is quite inert.
Frequency response 20 -20kHz +3/-2 dB
Compliance: 8 um/mN
Stylus Type: Nude Elliptical
Tracking force range: 3.0 - 5.0 grams, recommended 4 .0 grams (I found it excellent at 4.2 g)
Recommended Load Impedance: >10 Ohm
Cartridge weight: 30 grams

If you are curious about the SPU cult, this is a really great way to discover it.
