Sumiko Moonstone MM (Moving-Magnet) Cartridge, Brand New

$299

Great mid-level cartridge with replaceable stylus. 

Part of the new Oyster series just released by Sumiko. Made in Japan.

From a great review by Michael Fremer via Analogue Planet:

"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 breathtaking dynamics of the Moonstone outperform many comparably priced moving coil cartridges without requiring the huge investment in preampfification."
