Kiseki Lapis Lazuli
Stereo Moving-Coil Phono Cartridge
The Kiseki Lapis Lazuli is probably the most difficult to find moving-coil phono cartridge - this cartridge is owned only by very few audiophiles, being very close friends of Mr Fokadu.
The cartridge is made out of Lapis Lazuli, a beautiful blue coloured stone, with small gold particles in it.
A full material natural diamond is used to manufacture the very tiny, very stiff cantilever.
Stylus, armature and magnet are as in the Kiseki Agaat cartridges.
After the Lapis Lazuli has been built, it is tuned and tested with music material for about 50 hours, after which it will be fine tuned again; then the cartridge is ready to find a lucky owner.
Mr Fokadu himself owns only one Lapis Lazuli for his own use, so if somebody wants to have such a cartridge, it is made on special order, which can take a time-period of about 2-3 months.

Combining some very sensible design concepts at a very unsensible price, the Kiseki Lapis Lazuli is best thought of as combining the detail resolution of the Ortofon MC3000 with the effortless fluidity enjoyed by the Clearaudios - £3500 HiFi Choice 1988
