Sumiko Amethyst Moving Magnet Cartridge
Easily Sumiko's most ambitious moving magnet cartridge to date, the Amethyst features a nude Line-Contact stylus and an upgraded generator assembly providing ultra-low noise, hair-raising dynamics, and superior tracking. This unique setup takes advantage of physically-generated electromotive forces fundamental to MM designs which accurately recreate the original sound of any recording. The Amethyst is an easy choice when looking for the highest performance with the versatility to pair well with nearly any phono stage on the market.
