Murasakino Ltd. is proud to announce the new MC cartridge, “Sumile.”
“Sumile” means “violet” in Japanese, taken from the cartridge’s housing color.
(It is “Das Veilchen” in German.)

Sumile is not lavished  with superfluous technologies or rare materials.
Instead, through our commitment to fundamental quality, it is the ultimate analog product.

As a low-impedance MC cartridge, Sumile’s impedance is only 1.2Ω.
Producing a low-impedance cartridge is fairly simple because the impedance is kept low by reducing the number of turns in the coil.
However, fewer coil turns also reduce output voltage, which has to be compensated for by larger amplification.
In addition, noise problems are more likely to occur.
But Sumile solves these problems by maintaining low impedance while ensuring sufficient output voltage.

The cartridge’s base to which the power-generation system, including the coil, is attached is made of stainless steel.
Stainless steel is renowned for its stable sound quality and has been incorporated into products such as tonearms (and some cartridges) by many manufacturers.
Compared to aluminum, stainless steel is more rigid and harder to process, but the high-quality result makes the difficulty worthwhile.
Sumile creates a sound that is just not possible for aluminum.

But not stopping there, we bring Sumile to perfection by gold plating the processed stainless steel.
Gold plating not only coats and protects the stainless steel but also improves the overall sound quality.
Gold plating Sumile was inspired by how various platings on wind instruments transform and improve their sound.
