Raises the performance bar even higher at this highly competitive price point!
The evolution of the ever-popular Blue Point Special, the BPS EVO III raises the performance bar even higher at this highly competitive price point. Its tonal balance is remarkably smooth, exhibiting a fundamental richness and overall warmth without sacrificing musical detail and resolution. Sound stage focus and channel separation are exemplary, as is the cartridges ability to maintain a coherent consistency that reproduces music as a perceptual whole.
Chemically coated aluminum cantilever with 0.3mm x 0.7mm elliptical stylus. Ultra low-resonance open generator design and resonance controlled mounting system provides the lowest mechanical impedance. The BPS EVO III is highly compatible with most modern tonearms.
"Sumiko's Blue Point EVO III is an updated version of the firm's popular Blue Point Special (BPS)... The EVO III provided a big helping of moving-coil goodness, yet was refreshingly free of common moving-coil quirks and foibles. Enthusiastically recommended." - The Absolute Sound, April 2004
