Kiseki Blue Goldspot

Stereo Moving-Coil Phono Cartridge

Kiseki Blue Goldspot

Description

The Kiseki Blue was the first moving coil cartridge made by Mr Fokadu - this was a low output, low-impedance design.

The Kiseki Blue has undergone some improvements and after being called the Blue Silverspot we currently have the Blue Goldspot.

It is difficult to make a good moving coil cartridge; it is very difficult to build a reference cartridge.

Mr Fokadu needs the best materials available and uses the best techniques to build such a reference cartridge.

It is necessary to hand pick parts; he uses his special highly modified winding lathe; special OFC wire is used; special fluid is used on the coil to avoid the influence of room-temperature changes on the coils; the magnet is charged after the yokes are connected to the magnet to get the highest possible power.

This all costs time and a lot of work, but if you listen to the Kiseki Blue Goldspot you will know it was worth all the trouble!

Comments

Kieski should be spelt Kiseki should it not!

I still have a relatively under-used Kiseki Blue Goldspot on a Helius Orion Mk. 1 (Van den Hul re-wired) tonearm and Pink Triangle PT TOO. Bought to replace a Koetsu Black K many years ago. The Kiseki strength when compared to to my old Koetsu lies in its ability to smooth out musical highs and lows so to speak that the Koetsu struggled with sometimes. It's smooth operator for sure. Matches up nicely with my Gale 402's. May be to refined for some!
