Excellent Step Up in Cartridge Hierarchy
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I just so happened to upgrade from the Shure M97xE as David did, the previous reviewer. I love the simplicity of the Blue Point in comparison. Easy to see where the "needle drops" with the cartridge's flat face and white marked center. Very different from the M97xE's Dynamic Stabilizer brush for which I never used. I can tell an improvement in sound quality right away. I also like the fact that this moving coil Blue Point is high output at 2.5mV. This means I can use my Bellari VP130 Tube Phono Preamp without excessive gain/volume. Very happy with that. Overall, terrific choice for an upgraded cartridge without breaking the bank. Used my Crutchfield Rewards Points as well. Thanks Crutchfield!
