The Signature (Rosewood Signature Platinum) Moving Coil Cartridge
The top model in the impressive Rosewood Series models from Japanese cartridge masters Koetsu.
The Koetsu Rosewood is a cornerstone of high-performance analogue playback history. By carefully selecting ultra high purity materials and aging parts to perform optimally, Sugano-san formed a cartridge that recreates real breathing music extracted from the grooves of your record collection.
The Koetsu Rosewood Signature Platinum features rare platinum magnets and silver-plated 6N copper coils usually reserved for Koetsu’s stone body cartridges. It’s the perfect choice for those lusting after a stone model but require a cartridge with less mass or simply prefer the look of rosewood.
“I’d never before had the sense so strongly that I was actually hearing the mike feed. It was truly amazing; I felt like I was right there.” – Jonathan Scull, Stereophile Magazine November 1998
“To me, the Koetsu Rosewood Signature Platinum felt extraordinarily natural, sophisticated, and correct. Most important, Koetsu’s best rosewood-bodied cartridge made me feel good about the records I own. Once you go Koetsu . . .” Herb Reichert, Stereophile Magazine December 2018
