The Coralstone Platinum Phono Cartridge by Koetsu is a limited edition product by a legendary company whose turntable cartridges set the gold standard for analog sound reproduction. It's an exceptional achievement designed to enthrall vinyl enthusiasts with its uncanny naturalness and neutrality, bringing LPs to life with an accuracy and warmth that draws listeners closer to their music.
Like other Koetsu cartridges, the Coralstone Platinum is handmade by the company's meticulous craftsmen. It showcases the best in recordings through a soundstage that's wide, deep and tall, and so three-dimensional it leaves listeners feeling as if they are seated in a middle row of the orchestra section. The Coralstone Platinum delivers rich, vibrant musical performances that handle wide dynamic shifts and intimate moments with the same easy grace.
Weighing 12 grams, the cartridge's oblong body is hand-carved from carefully selected pieces of rare petrified coral. The body houses 10 turns of silver-plated, hand-wound copper coil wire, a quadrahedron stylus, a platinum magnet, and a boron rod cantilever. Koetsu precisely grinds the Coralstone's specially designed stylus.
If you're looking for top of the line performance, look no further. This cartridge will deliver the most engaging, realistic sound possible from your records. The soundstaging is top notch, virtually making your speakers disappear, giving you the feeling your room is the stage. The body of this cartridge is machined from a block of high quality Coral Stone. WARNING-If you buy this cartridge, you may find it very difficult to do anything but listen to music all day long!
