Superb Tracking Ability, Take-You-There Dynamics, and Low-Noise Operation: Sumiko Amethyst Moving-Magnet Phono Cartridge Also Pairs with Nearly Any Phono Preamplifier on the Market
Easily the most ambitious Sumiko moving-magnet phono cartridge to date, Amethyst features a nude line-contact stylus and an upgraded generator assembly providing ultra-low noise, hair-raising dynamics, and superior tracking. This unique setup benefits from the same physically-generated electromotive forces fundamental to MM designs which accurately recreate the original sound of any recording. Amethyst is an easy choice when looking for exceptional performance possible along with the versatility to pair well with nearly any phono preamplifier on the market.
"If you have a turntable that came with an already mounted cartridge, this will represent a performance upgrade of a heroic level. At only 6.9g total mass, it remains flexible and will be right at home on nearly any modern tonearm."
