The Rosewood Standard and Signature are very similar in construction. Electrically, the Signature offers a more closely matched core and coil set. Cosmetically, the Standard is distinguished by a sloped base when viewed lengthwise while the Rosewood Signature is rectangular-shaped like the other Koetsu cartridges. The Rosewood Standard/Signature is also sometimes referred to as the Red/Red Signature.

For decades, the Koetsu sound has been legend in audiophile lore. But only a proud few have owned and experienced the unequaled magic these hand-built cartridges evoke. Many of the converted search out second and third Koetsus. Why? Maybe it's time you hear for yourself.

With their hand wound coils and meticulously carved stone and wood bodies Koetsu cartridges transend the boundaries between art and science.

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.

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
