We received Anthony Chiarella’s US Press Release which we are more than happy to share with you.
In the March, 2015 issue of Stereophile, Analog Guru Michael Fremer reviewed The Kiseki PurpleHeart N.S.
“If you care about looks,” Fremer says, “the PurpleHeart NS has the goods.” (Personally, I find both the Blue and PurpleHeart to be among the most attractive transducers ever to hang off the end of a tonearm …). When it comes to sound, Fremer found “… the PurpleHeart N.S. produced a rich, inviting harmonic structure right out of the box … Broken in and tracking at 2.5gm, the PurpleHeart tracked most everything I threw at it.” Best of all, he promises, “The cartridge didn’t have a sonically unpleasant bone in its body but, when the recording did, the Kiseki gave me enough of it to communicate it effectively.”
The review concludes: “Overall, the Kiseki PurpleHeart N.S. is a physical and sonic beauty … In today’s world of crazy-priced cartridges, it offers a sophisticated sound well beyond what you’d expect at its $3,299 price …”
We thank Michael Fremer and Stereophile magazine for this great review. Check the website of Stereophile magazine HERE.
