Oyster Phono Cartridge

Classic Moving Magnet Phono Pickup

Sumiko Oyster phono cartridge is generally smooth in character yet surprisingly musical — a high-value introduction to the hobby of critical listening at manageable price for anyone looking to get a taste for the difference a cartridge upgrade can make. A conventional moving magnet cartridge with a rugged spherical stylus and alloy cantilever, it’s perfect match for any MM preamp and represents a fantastic step forward from most any entry-level & OEM design. You’ll hear an added layer of depth accompanied by enticing mid/high frequency extension.
