Sumiko’s new flagship open-architecture moving coil cartridge uses the same resonance-reducing body design as the Songbird, but introduces a long-grain boron cantilever and a Micro-Ridge stylus.
This allows the Starling to render the grandeur of an orchestra, while still preserving air and space, or to realize every detail of a nuanced jazz recording with its responsive dynamics and deep silences.
The mechanical silence of the Starling concedes a dynamic linearity across the entire spectrum that allows it to handle even the most demanding passages with effortless poise and convincing drive.
