The Takumi is the entry level Miyajima: Smooth. Never anything if not musical. Never offensive.-- TA quick Review
Stereotimes: the Takumi is a serious reference quality cartridge, and I’m seriously thinking of making it my reference cartridge. That’s saying something, because I have loved my Benz Micro Ace for a long time. It’s not perfect, I wouldn’t feed it a steady diet of my Parliament/Funkadelic albums. Rendering a wave of synthesizers and throbsonics-butt-thumping-bass just isn’t its thing. But if you’re looking to settle into the sweet spot, dim the lights, poor yourself a nice glass of Riesling and be transported to an intimate music venue, then you can’t go wrong with the Miyajima Labs Takumi. Its sound and build quality make it worth seeking out and its price tag makes it a serious bargain. Considering that this is their least expensive cartridge, I’m really curious about what a little more money might get. It’s hard to imagine more. Highly recommended. Read the full article HERE.
