The Kiseki Blue N.S. is the first "new style" Kiseki cartridge ever. The typical, but shorter, Kiseki body is machined out of solid aluminium, the motor is built from the best available parts today. Two years of experimenting, testing all possible choices of materials and techniques to result in a better new Kiseki Blue. A Kiseki Blue which surpasses the results of the original Kiseki Blue from the 80's and of the more recent Kiseki Blue N.O.S. Only then Kiseki felt they had a reason to produce this Kiseki Blue N.S.!
"Queuing up a clean copy of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours, it’s instantly evident that the Kiseki Blue NS is a very special cartridge indeed. And, that’s the less expensive model, at $. The PurpleHeart NS for a thousand dollars more is a revelation. The tonal balance of both Kiseki cartridges are more saturated than colored, if you will. Think of it as turning up the saturation control on your TV or computer monitor, where the primary colors are just a bit brighter than they are in reality, but the end result is highly pleasing. This is what the Kisekis bring to the table (pun intended)."
"Getting back to the Mac, all four members’ vocals take on a distinctive, specific placement across the soundstage, going well beyond the speaker boundaries. Both cartridges set up to the UniDen alignment specification are breathtakingly quiet – providing all the wonder of analog with the ultra low noise floor of digital, with clean records, of course!." - Jeff Dorgay, TONEAudio Magazine
