Koetsu Things Of Beauty

I've been researching proper tonearm and cartridge setup this week as I am going to swap carts. I try not to let my eyes stay on high dollar cartridges too long as I am a music junkie on a budget. This Koetsu cart kept showing up in my electroweb searches. Damn these Koetsu cartridges are beautiful. If I bought one of these and it did not sound as beautiful as it looked I would be heartbroken.

If anyone knows of any other Japanese cartridge porn I should be drooling over please let me know. 


  1. Judging only from our past reviews, the Koetsu carts do sound as good as they look, unfortunately. But have you considered Miyajima or Miyabi?

    I heard the Miyajimo Shilabe at the Experience Music / Intact Audio room at Lone Star Audio Fest last year. It was a beautiful cartridge. Dave Slagle had three tonearms setup with various cartridges and that was one of them. I think we ran it until about about 4am. Good times.


  3. Hi,

    Miyajima Labs, IKEDA, Miyabi...
