Ortofon Xpression SPU cartridge with SLM technology

Okay, so you probably can't get an Ortofon A90 cartridge right now. They were released in a limited run of 400 and they're all spoken for. But as I said in the last entry, the SLM technology will find its way into other Ortofons...and it has. This is the Xpression SPU cartridge from Ortofon, and it's designed for SPU tonearms, but it can also be used with traditional tonearms that have removable headshells. Once again this is a stunning, unique design and would be the perfect cart for my Shindo Garrard 301 turntable...when I win the lottery and buy one, that is. (For the record, the Xpression is $5400, even more than the A90.)
