Highly regarded and no longer available MC (Moving-Coil) cartridge from Sumiko, probably their most successful model ever.

Lightly used and working perfectly.

Cantilever is aligned and centered properly. Suspension is intact and stylus is super clean and in perfect geometric shape. All verified using our shop microscope inspection station (see listing photos).

Best of all this MC cartridge is high output which means it will work with most preamps.

The cartridge will arrive in a Sumiko box with a screw set.

Testing Process:
We start by doing a detailed physical inspection under light magnification to asses the cantilever condition, its position in the cartridge body and the condition of the suspension. We also inspect any coil wires and the output connections to make sure it hasn’t been strained. We then perform a light cleaning with specialized agents and blow it dry with compressed air.

We then perform a more detailed inspection with our Wild Heerbrugg professional microscope. From there we can asses the wear and quality of the stylus and determine how much use it has had and if there are any mechanical issues. We can also identify if it needs further cleaning or care.

We then move the cartridge to a digital microscope where we take photo os the cantilever for future reference.

We then move to the test bench where we can check for continuity of each channel and resistance.

On certain cartridges and it the technician feels necessary we install the unit on a turntable and run a few test records to ascertain tacking ability, distortion and compliance.
