For many, their Koetsu journey starts with the Black Goldline. While it is the most affordable Koetsu, it doesn’t sacrifice what makes a Koetsu special. The Black Goldline uses many of the same parts as the higher end models and the result is effortless musicality and magic.
"From the clarinets in the opening to the deeply textured final chord of the first movement, the Koetsu's performance was impossible to ignore: This wasn't just pretty sound in place of the music but sound as a part of the music." Art Dudley, Stereophile
“The thing that really grabs me when listening to this moving coil cartridge is its overarching realism, musicality, clarity, and wide open extended sound.” Positive Feedback
