Exceptional performance is achieved by the open-generator body design and rigid generator housing that
prevents the build-up of both external and internal resonances and that create distortions common to closed body designs.

Additionally, a hand-ground elliptical stylus fitted to a Long Grain Boron cantilever provides efficient
energy transfer from stylus to coil resulting in superior tracking, extended low frequency response and superior
dynamic range. Suitable for use with a wide range of tonearm designs the Blackbird is the latest manifestation
of Sumiko’s most recent thinking, listening and refinement of phono cartridge design.
