I’ve read about it for years. I’ve heard it very briefly in other rigs over the years. I finally had to taste it myself. Just installed a Rosewood Standard that the good folks at MD accepted my Dynavector 17DX in trade toward the purchase of.
Fine tuning and final dial-in of this beauty hasn’t even begun and I can say for voice and acoustic instruments it is oh so seductive. Those of you who have thought about it, have at TT plus tonearm that can get the best out the Koetsu sound - find a way to taste it yourself.
I’m smitten already. It’d be nice if Koetsu actually provided some setup info with the cart and the untapped mounting holes are a royal pain in the hmmm, hmmm to deal with. The payoff for nerve-racking, fumble fingered near disaster getting a Koetsu mounted and aligned is handsome indeed.
