Product Description

Designed for exceedingly low noise levels, wide dynamic range and the highest possible fidelity in its price class, Blackbird is destined to become an analog classic. Exceptional performance is achieved by the open-generator body design and rigid generator housing that prevents the build-up of both external and internal resonances and that create distortions common to closed body designs. Additionally, a hand-ground elliptical stylus fitted to a Long Grain Boron cantilever provides efficient energy transfer from stylus to coil resulting in superior tracking, extended low frequency response and superior dynamic range. Suitable for use with a wide range of tonearm designs the Blackbird is the latest manifestation of Sumiko’s most recent thinking, listening and refinement of phono cartridge design.
