Sumiko phono cartridges

Sumiko is a brand that has been around for 30 years. They are considered “high-end” cartridges. Manufacture site: http://www.sumikoaudio.net/en-us/our-brands/sumiko-phono-cartridges/products I used to have the Blue Point No. 1. I found that these cartridges are rather picky towards tables and tone arms though, at least the Blue Point is. I could not get the one I had to sound good. Obviously, I had it mounted to the wrong tonearm. These cartridges are supposed to sound fantastic and they do, provided they match the tone arm you have.
