Koetsu Red K Signature

Koetsu Red K Signature

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 Red K Signature uses the most tightly matched coil and core sets offering more precise focus and a larger soundstage than the Rosewood Standard.

“Listening to the Rosewood Signature was an addictive experience. It became difficult to curtail a listening session as there was always one more album I had to spin. It’s the cartridge I could happily live with for years to come. This is one of the easiest recommendations I’ve ever made, in essence a gift for the music lover who would like to kick back at the end of a long day and just enjoy the music. I think this is what Sugano-san had in mind all along.”

Koetsu History

Named in honor of the Japanese artist Honami Koetsu, the company was started by Yoshiaki Sugano.

A boxer, artist, sword maker and automotive executive, Sugano-san was a true renaissance man.

His love of western classical music led him on a journey to improve the musicality of common phono cartridges.

Through his experimentation he pioneered the use of high purity materials such as 6N copper and rare platinum iron magnets.

For more than thirty-years, Koetsu has masterfully blended the highest purity technical materials with ones of natural beauty to create the most sought after cartridges in the world.

Sugano-San’s legacy is carried on by his son Fumihiko who apprenticed under his father to become a master cartridge maker.

Every Koetsu cartridge is hand made in Japan and inherently limited in nature

These sonic and visual masterpieces are available in limited quantities and are offered by only the most knowledgable audio retailers
