Stereophile Recommended and The Absolute Sound Editors' Choice Award-Winning MC Cartridge Remains a Supreme Analog Value: Sumiko Blue Point Special EVO III Is Graceful and Consistent
The Blue Point Special EVO III moving-coil cartridge is fast, detailed, and dynamic, with a touch of warmth in the mid-band. Like all Sumiko cartridges, it offers great rhythmic drive, propelling the music forward making every recording more fun. The 2.5mV output makes it compatible with virtually all MM phono stages while 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’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 EVO III provided a big helping of moving-coil goodness, yet was refreshingly free of common moving-coil quirks and foibles. Enthusiastically recommended."
