Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
An upgrade to a entry level audiophile turntable. If the table were a bit more capable I would have likely gone with the Amethyst. [ Charles  Oct 27, 2019 ]

1 question already asked

Q
How well will the Sumiko Moonstone pair with the arm on a Rega Planer 2 , and a Creek integrated amp.. any issues ?
[ Ray  Jan 16, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
Currently my Moonstone cartridge by Sumiko is on a S-shape tonearm which requires a headshell. So I pass on forwarding advice as the parameters are not the same with the RB 220. Nevertheless, the cartridge is a fine piece and an enjoyment.
