Koetsu Rosewood Signature Platinum

The Koetsu Rosewood is a cornerstone of high-performance analogue playback history.

Koetsu Rosewood Signature Platinum

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 Rosewood Signature Platinum features rare platinum magnets and silverplated 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 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

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
