My own humble experience with Koetsu cartridges began with the Rosewood in 1987.
This is still the best phono stage for under $1,000.
Its strengths are good build quality, a full feature set and ease of use.
The way I see it, the Phono Preamp is one of the hardest briefs in audio for the electronic designer.
In recent years, “180 gram” vinyl is frequently offered as a signifier of better vinyl record quality. But I’ve found most of these ‘heavy vinyl’ releases to be of variable, if not disappointing, sound quality. So I got thinking
Tracking the record groove ‘tangent’ is clearly a noble aim (zero tracking error, zero anti-skating), but devising a linear tracking tonearm is no trivial task.
Leave preconceptions at the door when you meet The Wand tonearm, a locally built, carbon fibre unipivot tonearm.
Much of my classical music education, I owe to Dennis.
