Etsuro Urushi is a low-output moving coil cartridge that outputs 0.25 mV/1kHz. The lower outputs are produced by winding the coil with fewer turns of wire. This results in higher resolution and transparency. The EU features a super fine line (80u) diamond mounted in a sapphire cantilever. The copper wound coils are suspended in a field generated by a Samarium Cobalt magnet. The mounting plate is made of 2.5 mm sapphire and the Duralumin(A7075) body is hand-coated by artisans with Urushi lacquer. The EU is finished exquisitely; it’s a work of art; it is truly eye candy.
