Open Architecture High Output MC Phono Cartridges

Designed for exceedingly low noise levels, wide dynamic range and the highest possilbe fidelity in its price class, Blackbird is destined to become an analog classic. Each cartridge is assembled using time honored, labor intensive techniques, hand calibrated and critically auditioned to meet the most rigorous standards of consistancy.

The main advantage of high output moving coil cartridges is the elimination of any additional gain stages, resulting in an overall reduction of the noise floor. With 2.5mV directly driving a standard 47k Ohm RIAA phono stage, the best possible signal to noise ratio is realized. Nothing but music emerges from your most treasured recordings.

Moving Coil Cartridge Trade-In Program

Sumiko offers the service of trading in worn or damaged Sumiko moving coil cartridges toward a new unit at a lower price. We have never “retipped” a cartridge as the word implies; Sumiko has always replaced a cartridge trade-in with a new unit. Please contact our audio advisor for more information.
