LAB REVIEW

Sumiko's Blue Point No.2 Cartridge is a high output moving coil cartridge that offers high-end audiophile sound comparable to carts well above its price point. The Blue Point No.2 improves upon its predecessor with "improved body to create better energy transfer between the cartridge and the tonearm," resulting in even clearer, detailed sound. The cartridge can be found on high end decks like the Pro-Ject 2 Xperience Basic & RM 5.1 SE Turntable, and can be used with nearly any preamp or receiver phono stage. Works with standard mount tone arms only.

Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • Hello, Would it be a good fit for my New Rega Planar Three, I actually have an Elys 2 cartridge, I find the sound to be very good, I like the warmth but find the highs a littre weak.

    The Sumiko Blue Point No.2 MC Cartridge is a great moving coil catridge, there will be a noticeable difference. We can not confirm that the highs will be stronger (there a lot of factors that go into this aside from cartridge), but moving coil catridges generally have a more lush sound. Note, that you'll need a MC-capable phono stage (many are switchable).
