Kiseki Blue N.S.
Kiseki Blue N.S. MC Phono Cartridge
The Kiseki Blue N.S. is the first “New Style” Kiseki cartridge ever. The typical, but shorter, body is machined out of solid aluminium, the motor is built from best available parts today. Two years of experimenting, testing all possible choices of materials and techniques to result in a better new Kiseki Blue. A Kiseki Blue which surpasses the results of the original Blue from the 80’s ánd of the more recent Kiseki Blue N.O.S. Only then we felt we had a reason to produce this Kiseki Blue N.S.
It will still be available in limited quantities, but we try to supply the world in such a way that once it is available in your country, there should not be a shortage afterwards. Only if enough products are available to us, we will explore new areas. Elsewhere on this website you can see where this new Blue N.S. will become available, where you have to travel for an opportunity to listen to the first Kiseki “New Style” cartridge.
