Oyster Series

The Blue Point No. 2 has long set the performance standard for the savvy audiophile on a budget. Offering vinyl afficionados all the refinement and ability of a true moving coil, but delivering the output level of a moving magnet cartridge for easy system-pairing has proven too much for many cartridge manufacturers over the years, yet the Blue Point models deliver where others struggle. 

The Blue Point No. 2 marries a low-mass cantilever to a powerful generator system for 2.5mV of output. It's also constructed in a way that makes it easy to install onto virtually any tonearm/headshell, making it a flexible performer that has stood the test of time.

For information retrieval, the Blue Point No. 2 uses SUMIKO's popular 0.3 x 0.7 micron elliptical stylus and boasts excellent tracking ability with enviable channel separation, for maximal musical enjoyment. 

Key Features:

  • High Output Moving Coil cartridge with 0.3 x 0.7 micron Elliptical stylus
  • Sound refinement of an MC with the output voltage of a typical MM design 
  • Low-resonance body that's easy to install to any common tonearm
  • Overhead mounting design
  • High output for easy matching to a phono stage
  • Easy to set-up and install
