VPI Bloodwood MC Cartridge


Based off the Miyajima Takumi, voiced by VPI with a special limited Anniversary "Blood Wood" Body.

"Picked up a VPI cartridge and installed it tonight. WOW! Warm lush mids, extended, but never bright highs. And the bass? Who knew there was that much bass in them there grooves! Not quite as nuanced, but I actually prefer it to the Cadenza Bronze it replaced...and its $1000 less! There’s something about that Bloodwood!"

"The Miyajima-based VPI Anniversary has a sweet nature that suits the likes of soft, smoky jazz to a tee. Fed with 'Love Dance' from Diane Schuur's The Diane Schuur Collection [GRP Records GR-9591], it made a good case for itself, offering up an emotive, warm performance."  - Hi Fi News
