Having come from the Dynavector stable previously David at Analogue Seduction sugguested to try the Koetsu Black .I was looking to upgrade and bring a cartridge to match of the Avid Sequel and SME IV tonearm. I arrived with my Turntable set up and together we set up the Koetsu Black Cartridge on the SME IV.This proved difficult due to the long cartridge body and lower height compared to the Dynavector. The issue was resolved with the introduction of the head shell spacer of 3 grams .This increased the height of the tonearm and allowed a straight forward cartridge to tonearm set up to take place. Now to the sound .My record collection now breathes and becomes so musical .The Koetsu black is all about mid range .Many thanks for Davids time in setting up and his advice.
