The Blue Point from Sumiko has been THE benchmark high output moving coil cartridge (MM) for several years now. Here, with the latest version, it offers playback performances and a musicality that is rare at this price. Its high output and 47 K Ohms load make it compatible with all the MM Phono preamplifiers and is used to dispense with the MC section. Its compliance, tracking force and weight make it compatible with 90% of tonearms on the market.
It displays MC cartridges nuance and precision. The dynamics are amazing and span across the entire spectrum. We particularly appreciate the sound stage and its rare timbre quality for this price range. It amply deserves its reputation as it thoroughly surprised us..!
It surely is one of the best choices at this budget and with this technology.
Couldn't recommend it enough! Franck
