Platanus 2.0S MC Phono Cartridge NEW

Designer Mr. Tetsuya Sukehiro was involved with the production of many OEM cartridges for a long time. Now, for the first time he’s launching his own original cartridge under the  PLATANUS brand. PLATANUS refers to the location of the Laboratory where Sukehiro is designing his creations.  

Platanus 2.0S was designed for the reproduction of lifelike sound and non compromised dynamics. In the era where High-resolution digital audio is advocated as the ultimate state of the art, PLATANUS was design to bring inherent vivid/natural tone as well to reveal the original musicians message.  

As a result Platanus 2.0S offers full scale, rich/opulent sound and natural tone, that can be vividly vibrant and with excellent transient response.
