Sumiko Songbird Moving-Coil Phono Cartridge Is True to Its Name and Will Help Make Your Vinyl LPs Sing: Open-Architecture Model Excels at Vocal Openness and Midrange Detail

Sumiko's Songbird moving-coil phono cartridge arrives at a much-needed price point perfect for taking committed audiophiles into more serious listening realms replete with thrilling naturalism, realism, and detail. As Songbird's name suggests, the open-architecture cartridge excels at providing colorful and rich vocals, and particularly highlights the powerful low and mid-end of funk, R&B, soul, and rock. Its long 7-micron stylus face handles different cutting angles, and its neutrality also proves wondrous when listening to classical music. Let Songbird help make your LPs sing!
