Sumiko Moonstone Cartridge

By Sumiko


The Moonstone is an affordable high-performance moving magnet cartridge that utilizes the powerful mechanically-generated electromotive forces of the moving magnet to help give your playback extra punch and convincing realism. Exceptionally well-balanced and dimensionally dense, the breath-taking dynamics of the Moonstone outperform many comparably priced moving coil cartridges without requiring the huge investment in preamplification.
