For over thirty-five years, SUMIKO has provided a comprehensive range of phono cartridges to music lovers seeking the finest musical experience at a variety of price points. In fact, the greatest market success of SUMIKO phono cartridges has hinged on their phenomenal cost-to-performance ratio.

The new Palo Sanotos Presentation is no exception. New design requirements incorporating advances in material technology and construction techniques have resulted in a significantly improved product which delivers a highly refined and resolved, yet musically satisfying sound quality previously unavailable at or even near its price.

Improvements grace virtually every facet of the product to differentiate it from its smaller sibling the Pearwood Celebration II. Most significant is the new generator anchoring system, which has substantially improved rigidity and reduced resonance as well as background noise to previously unheard of levels. From the new handcrafted Palo Sanotos (Brazillian Rosewood) body, which is shorter in height to add vision when mounting and aligning this cartridge, to the long-grain boron cantilever and new line contact stylus, which significantly improves resolution, the Palo Santos Presentation truly deserves the title as our flagship offering.
