The evolution of the ever-popular Blue Point Special, the EVO III raises the performance bar even higher at this highly competitive price point. Its tonal balance is remarkably smooth, exhibiting a fundamental richness and overall warmth without sacrificing musical detail and resolution. Sound stage focus and channel separation are exemplary, as is the cartridges’ ability to maintain a coherent consistency that reproduces music as a perceptual whole.

High-output moving coil design with 2.5-mV output. Chemically coated aluminum cantilever with 0.3mm x 0.7mm elliptical stylus. Ultra low-resonance open generator design. Resonance controlled mounting system provides the lowest mechanical impedance. Highly compatible with most modern tonearms.

Stereophile 2005 Class C Recommended Component
With an output of 2.5mV and recommended tracking force of 2.0gm, the new version of the Blue Point Special uses a top plate said to offer far greater rigidity while weighing less, and a 0.3 mil by 0.8 mil elliptical stylus. It proved to be "a model of tight clarity, rhythmic certainty, and excellent tracking," with "A reasonable amount of punch and an overall clean, bracing demeanor." In comparisons with more expensive cartridges, MF noted stilted harmonic development, restricted dynamic range, and diminished soundstaging.

Stereophile 2004 Analogue Corner Review
The elliptical stylus helped make the BPS a good tracker, and transients were clean and tight, if a bit lacking in nuance. You'll get a richer midrange and greater liquidity from, say, Grado's woodenbodied Sonata, but not this level of excitement. The Sonata might make abetter overall choice for classical and acoustic music, especially female voices, but for rock and pop at an affordable price - especially if your budget system needs a shot of adrenaline - the Blue Point Special Evo III will fit the bill.

Hi-Fi Choice Best Buy
This is probably one of the most enjoyable cartridges I've tried below £300: pacey and dynamic, crisp and to the point, able to pull musical life from the grooves in toe-tapping fashion. It exudes a no-nonsense kind of sound, playing the notes and hitting the rhythms without unnecessary dressing, soaring through tracks with eager aplomb. From House of Love to Sibelius, it proved an engaging performer... Bass has pleasing authority and drive, and it passes the percussive test with ease - snapping snares and solid kick drums are an instant hit. At times it's a touch rough around the edges, and one or two competitors offer better front-to-back perspectives and some buyers may prefer a richer balance. But for me, this Sumiko's direct musical statement makes it a Best Buy at the price. Free shipping at asking Price!
