Acoustic Refinement

Building on Rainier, Olympia implements an upgraded cantilever assembly that reduces moving mass, translating to more nimble groove tracing, extended nuance and expanded frequency response. A slight decrease in output from Rainier reduces noise in an already-quiet design, improving imaging and perpetuating realism that’s rare to come by in this class of cartridge.

The Latest Oysters

Designed for discerning, value-minded audiophiles, Rainier, Olympia & Moonstone supplement & complement Sumiko's existing range of Oysters. They build upon, enhance & refine the sonic character that listeners worldwide have enjoyed for decades. New innovation in cartridge design addresses the problem of resonance (things need to happen around a generator to voice a cartridge with honesty.) The housing thusly disperses & dissipates resonance, making way for effortless, transparent sonics that are enlivened with intimate nuance. The voicing is true to natural harmonics, space around voices & instruments as well as their attack & decay. Experience a diminutive backdrop that bolsters sonic images with a degree of aptitude reminiscent of moving coil designs that's unique to these Oyster cartridges.
