Product Details

Among the original HOMC (high output moving coil) cartridge designs, Blue Point No.2 acts like an MM as far as your phono preamp is concerned. It thusly blends the impact of an MM with the refinement of an MC. Our classic Blue Point begins the moving coil lineage of our Oyster & Reference Series. It delivers robust, well-defined bass along with invitingly rich mids and airy highs. It presents in hearty manner while maintaining the fine articulation an MC design has to offer.


Our Classic Oysters

Over 40 years and worldwide, our classic Oyster Series has left thousands of captivated listeners in its wake. The series is comprised of our Oyster (MM), Black Pearl (MM), Pearl (MM), Blue Point No. 2 (HOMC) & Blue Point Special EVO III (H & LOMC) — each capable of delivering a degree of refinement you have yet to hear from your turntable system. The cartridges have established themselves over decades as high-value gems that dependably out-perform listeners’ expectations for their dollar. Marked by honesty in analog reproduction, our Oyster Series remains true to what’s in the groove, impressively and convincingly voiced to bring you closer to your music.


Trade In or Trade Up

As user-replaceable styli are not on an option for moving coil phono cartridges, remember that any of our MCs, functional or otherwise, can be returned to your dealer in a re-tip exchange — a discount on the same cartridge or one model up, sparing you expense when your stylus heads south!
