Upscale Audio has Kiseki Blue NS and Kiseki Purple Heart NS in stock today!

The Kiseki Blue NS is the first “new style” Kiseki cartridge ever. The typical, but shorter, Kiseki body is machined out of solid aluminum, the motor is built from 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.
