The Blue Point Special EVO III marries a low-mass, chemically coated aluminium cantilever with SUMIKO’s finely polished, 0.3 x 0.7 micron elliptical stylus for exceptional tracking ability and musical detail, as well as superior dynamics and a faster response time. The cartridge is also the most affordable in the range to utilise an ultra-low resonance “open generator” design, with a resonance controlled mounting plate for the lowest possible mechanical impedance. The advanced physical design is still compatible with most modern tonearms, for ease of set-up.
The Blue Point Special EVO III is available in two output options. The standard “Low” output version has an output voltage comparable to most other moving coils, and requires either a step-up transformer or an MC phono stage for matching to a hi-fi system. The “High” output version is a type that many other cartridge manufacturers have struggled to achieve with such success. SUMIKO high output moving coils can be paired with almost any MM phono stage, and the Blue Point Special EVO III marries a low-mass cantilever to a powerful generator system for 2.5mV of output.
