Sumiko Blue Point No.2 Moving-Coil Phono Cartridge Has Been a Best-Seller for More Than a Decade: Winner of an Editors' Choice Award from The Absolute Sound
An audiophile classic cartridge, Sumiko's Blue Point No. 2 is one of the best, affordable high-output moving-coil cartridges to ever hit the market. Featuring a specially ground elliptical stylus which sits lower in the grooves than other elliptical designs, it offers excellent resolution and tracking. Its body is comprised of a special material designed to better couple with the tonearm, relieving the effects of resonance and greatly improving the cartridge's ability to resolve low-level information. Blue Point No.2 remains compatible with a broad range of tonearms, as the medium weight universal-mount body greatly speeds up alignment and eases installation.
“One of the best, if not the best, values in all of high-end audio."
—Corey Greenberg Stereophile
“A huge step up from entry-level cartridges.”
—Chris Martens, The Absolute Sound, Editors’ Choice Award
