Moving Coil Cartridge

SKU: aah-Sumiko Songbird Category: Tags: ,


Sumiko’s newest open-architecture moving coil cartridge provides an amazing acoustic return on a relatively small investment in your analog setup. The newly developed chassis design is extremely rigid, eliminating the need for any resonance-prone housing. The long 7-micron stylus face handles different cutting angles well, creating amazingly detailed but relaxed sound in a wide variety of setups. The Songbird is an excellent choice for anyone looking to drastically upgrade the analog section of their system at an excellent value.
