The latest step on an icon's journey, now available in High or Low output versions for personalised system matching.



The Blue Point No. 3 was born out of an investigation into the long-standing Blue Point No. 2's more limited anti-resonance properties. Resonance has a more significant impact than many listeners realise and Sumiko wanted to reimagine how the housing resonates around the generator in the Blue Point range. After countless hours of development, a new combination of materials alongside an improved body design and expert assembly techniques result in a cartridge where only the musical information is kept.



Thanks to Sumiko's tried and true moving coil cartridge generator system, the smoothness and subtlety one would expect from a good MC is present. Building on this, Blue Point No. 3 assembles its sonic picture from the ground up with its low-end response. Full and warm yet defined and textured, the depth of bass will invite you in to the musical image. In addition, you can expect a similar richness through the mids that remain decipherable. High-frequency attack and decay are simply sweet and airy.



Having developed such a refinement on a classic design, introducing both a high and low output variant was a logical option considering Sumiko's competency in both high and low output MC designs. So, whether you need a cartridge that can run capably on a MM-compliant phono stage, or if you have a more adept MC design, you can get the cartridge that best suits your taste and your system.



  • Full and warm yet defined and textured bass and mids with impressive high-frequency attack and decay.
  • Overhead mounting cartridge for installing into a headshell
