The Koetsu’s Coralstone Platinum phono cartridge is a work of art. The body of this cartridge is designed to resemble a piece of coral. The coils are wound from almost 100% pure copper.

Spectacular! The Koetsu Coralstone Platinum Cartridge possesses incontrovertible seductive power, body and presence. A presentation so convincing it literally swallows you into the music. The Coralstone's rendition of acoustic music and vocals glows in such a realistic manner it is hard to believe it is recorded music. Detail is prodigiously fused into a coherent musical event.

Big orchestrals are absolutely seamlessly and effortlessly presented. Passages with highly Dynamic swings are as limberly and gracefully handled as solos and intimate pieces. All music genres are perfectly served by the Coralstone's absolute stability, uncanny presence and assertive body. Extreme high and low frequencies are handled with better extension and control than other Koetsu stone bodies. It also tends to be a tad more neutral with a more transparent soundstage. It is hands down Koetsu's best cartridge, but much more Koetsu is convinced it is the best in the industry!

Koetsu

Koetsu cartridges are legendary and are some of the most highly sought premium phono cartridges in the world. Beautifully handcrafted using the finest materials, the attention to detail is truly remarkable with only a small number of cartridges produced each year. Koetsu was founded by Yoshiaki Sugano who was a boxer, artist, sword maker, automotive executive and lover of western classical music. His love of music took him on a journey designing and building some of the most beautiful and best sounding phono cartridges in the world.

Yoshiaki Sugano passed away in 2002 aged 95 but the legacy of Koetsu lives on with his son Fumihiko who having been an apprentice under his father is now a master cartridge maker in his own right. All Koetsu cartridges are still hand made in Japan using the finest materials to produce cartridges that not only sound fantastic, but are a work of art.

If you’re a fan of vinyl and want to take your equipment to the top level, then a Koetsu cartridge is an upgrade that will give you lasting satisfaction. For more information about Koetsu cartridges get in touch with Oxford Audio today on 01865 790 879
