Stereo MC Phono Cartridge
The Koetsu Rosewood is an 8.9g stereo moving coil cartridge with a natural Rosewood body, copper coil wiring, a Samarium Cobalt magnet and Boron cantilever. It is known for its deep and wide soundstage, clarity and dynamically sparkling midrange. It has a full-bodied sound which makes it an excellent choice for all genres of music.
Moving up the line to the Rosewood from the Black, owners have commented on the following improvements. The bass is a little tighter and faster. The high frequencies are a little smoother and overall there is an increase in resolution. Dynamics are similar overall, although the improvement is most noticeable in the bass, with greater ‘light & shade’ contrasts apparent that help with bass definition and detail. The midrange offers better focus which gives the source of sounds more apparent depth. Please note that this cartridge has also been known as the ‘Koetsu Red’ or the ‘Koetsu Standard’.
