About the Sumiko Blue Point No. 3 Low

Moving-coil design for high-definition sound

Vinyl lovers have long prized moving-coil cartridges for their clear, spacious sound. Compared to moving magnet designs, the Blue Point No. 3 Low's high-purity copper coils have less mass, which allows the stylus to track each record's grooves more accurately. This cartridge also boasts a nude-mounted, elliptical diamond stylus to minimize friction and wear on your treasured LPs, so you can enjoy them for a lifetime. 

Note: We recommend using this cartridge with a phono preamp that offers variable cartridge loading for moving coil cartridges.
