SUMIKO Starling MC Phono Cartridge

Deserving of Its Reference Designation: Sumiko Starling Moving-Coil Phono Cartridge Handles Any Music and Reproduces Air, Space, Nuances, and Dynamics with Effortless Poise and Drive

Part of the Sumiko Reference Series, the Starling moving-coil phono cartridge benefits from a resonance-reducing body design, long-grain boron cantilever, and micro-ridge stylus to provide engrossing analog playback. An all-rounder that pairs well with any time of music, Starling can render the grandeur of an orchestra while still preserving air and space – and also realize every detail of a nuanced jazz recording with responsive dynamics and tonal balance. Starling's mechanical silence concedes a dynamic linearity across the entire spectrum that allows it to handle even the most demanding passages with effortless poise and convincing drive.
