Stereophile Recommended and One of the Best Values in Affordable Analog!
The Blue Point Special EVO-III is a major advance in technology from our analog friends at Sumiko. A high-output moving coil cartridge, the BPS3 is fast, detailed and dynamic with a touch of warmth in the mid-band. Like all Sumiko cartridges, the BPS3 offers great rhythmic drive, propelling the music forward making every recording more fun to listen to.
“Sumiko’s newest Blue Point Special moving coil cartridge, the EVO-III, is a huge improvement over the original, which had set new standards in the low-end cartridge market. You’ll find a model of tight clarity, rhythmic certainty, and excellent tracking!”
— Michael Fremer, Stereophile
The BPS3's 2.5mV output makes it compatible with virtually all MM phono stages and the 8.3Gm weight allows compatibility with a broad range of tonearms. A threaded headshell makes installation a breeze and the nude design allows an unparalleled view of the stylus and cantilever making alignment a snap.
Sumiko Blue Point Special EVO-III is one of the best values in affordable analog and highly recommended!
"The EVO III provided a big helping of moving-coil goodness, yet was refreshingly free of common moving-coil quirks and foibles. Enthusiastically recommended."
