The Songbird comes in at a much needed price point perfect for launching the part-time audiophile into some serious listening. As its name suggests, this open-architecture moving coil cartridge excels at providing colorful and rich vocals, and highlights the powerful low and mid-end of funk and rock. The long 7-micron stylus face will handle different cutting angles well, and this cartridge is also great at providing some excitement to otherwise anemic classical system setups.

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.
