Having built a reputation purely on the impeccably natural sound created, Koetsu surpasses the need for advertising or exorbitant marketing. Once you hear one, going back to any other moving coil pickup will be challenging, to say the least. Even the entry-level cartridges from Koetsu will outperform any competition at the price. Many of the pickups contain over 99.9% pure copper for the coil windings, and some models can be fitted with a one-piece diamond stylus tip and cantilever. They will only get more precise, natural and aesthetically beautiful as you ascend the range.
Providing an exceptionally organic listening experience, a Koetsu will go beyond what you thought possible from a cartridge.
“The music seems to ‘happen’ between your loudspeakers; voices and instruments materialize before your very ears.” – Jimmy Hughes, HiFi+
