Sumiko Blackbird

Sumiko



The SUMIKO Blackbird has long been regarded as providing the most performance per dollar you can find in the industry. With the level of performance and clarity of many cartridges twice its price, the Blackbird was designed for exceedingly low noise levels, exceptionally wide dynamic range, and the highest possible fidelity in its price class. The Blackbird has already become a veritable analog classic and is sure to delight many more discerning ears for years to come.

A low-output version of the Blackbird is available at 0.7 mV, and Sumiko took advantage of a low-mass cantilever assembly to provide even faster response time and superior dynamics. With the right preamplification, the low-output Blackbird takes all of the performance features of the standard version and pushes them to the next level with the improved tracking that lightweight coils afford.
