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.2's moving coils have less moving mass. That allows the stylus to track each record's grooves more accurately, yielding greater sonic detail and transparency. This cartridge also boasts a nude-mounted, elliptical diamond stylus to minimize friction and wear on your treasured LPs, while providing a longer usable lifespan. Plus, its' high-output voltage design means direct compatibility with the phono inputs on more receivers and amps, eliminating the need for an additional moving-coil preamp.
