Koetsu The Signature


The Red Signature (Platinum) looks very much like the Red Signature.

The similarities however, stop there. The body of the Platinum model is made from aged Rosewood which gives it a darker color tone. The greatest difference though, is inside.

The coils are made of 6N copper wire, painstakingly clad with a silver jacket. The magnets are made of the proprietary (and very expensive) Platinum alloy which accounts for the higher price.

These powerful rare-earth magnets allow the cartridge to respond aptly to even the most subtle movements in the cantilever/stylus assembly resulting in the reproduction of delicate nuances in the music.

However, output for the Platinum models is lower than the others (0.25mV vs 0.6mV) and a good MC phono-stage is recommended to demonstrate the cartridge’s true capabilities.

Every audiophile music lover knows of the legendary sound of Koetsu phono cartridges from decades past. Those old enough to have experienced Sugano's Koetsus retain the memory of a musical experience unequaled. Few were privileged to own and enjoy a Koetsu. Many of the converted searched out second and third Koetsus, assuring a long, cherished relationship.
