Read below why Stereophile Magazine awarded our KISEKI PurpleHeart N.S. with an Recommended Component 2020 Award!
Following an absence from the market of nearly a quarter century, Kiseki’s handmade MC cartridges are back, manifested in two separate lines: New Old Style (NOS), built in 2010?2011 using a mix of old and new parts, and New Style (NS), which are new in every way. The Purpleheart NS is among the latter, and features a metal mounting plate with tapped holes and a solid-boron cantilever with an elliptical stylus. Specs include a 42-ohm internal resistance, 0.48mV output, and a recommended VTF of 2.46gm, in accordance with the Kiseki’s moderate compliance. In MF’s system, the Purpleheart NS produced “rich, supple sound with a tube-like tonality and musical flow,” albeit with “less-than-full expression of macrodynamics.” All in all, MF found the Kiseki to be “a physical and sonic beauty. [It] offers a sophisticated sound well beyond what you’d expect at its $3299 price.” (Vol.38 No.3)
