The Kiseki Blue N.S. moving coil phono cartridge is the first "New Style" cartridge from this renowned manufacturer. The typical, but shorter, Kiseki body is machined out of solid aluminium, and the motor is built from the best available parts today. Two years of experimenting, and testing all possible choices of materials and techniques resulted in substantial improvements to the new Kiseki Blue N.S. A cartridge which surpasses the results of the original Kiseki Blue from the 80s and of the more recent Kiseki Blue N.O.S. 

Kiseki uses N.O.S. for New Old Style, and N.S. for “New Style”. It means for new 2013 designed cartridges, they use the newest technology and parts, but based as much as possible on the parts as used in the limited version of N.O.S. cartridges plus a new body. They have chosen for a shorter style body as that is easier to use with the arms currently on the market. The shape of the body is based on a prior design and is in fact a mix of the Kiseki body and the body of our MillTek high-output MC cartridges. The N.S. cartridges are based on the same internal design, the same kind of parts as the N.O.S. cartridges, but all parts are current production.
