JICO SETO-HORI moving coil cartridge
Ceramic body, boron cantilever, microridge diamond
The SETO-HORI MC ceramic cartridge is hand-crafted in Japan with artful expertise to achieve optimized fidelity. Covering the high output voltage MC cartridge engine with SETOMONO ceramic-ware - SETO-HORI suppresses excess vibration of the cartridge engine itself.
The micro-ridge diamond's polyhedral shape reaches into the deepest recesses of the record groove to retrieve details previously inaccessible to other styli. This shape extends the lifespan of the stylus by reducing diamond and record wear. The boron cantilever provides a low mass and extreme efficiency of transmissions and vibrations. The base connected to the ceramic SETO-HORI cartridge is made of natural walnut wood.
“Kata-Tori” (mold making) and “Yaki-ire” (burning) are key processes for ceramic-ware. One of the problems with ceramic is shrinkage, which is why it has been said ceramic-ware is not suitable for cartridge bodies. JICO collaborated with a laboratory in the city Seto to study the shrinkage of ceramic pottery. The result is in the final process, JICO craftsmen finely adjust the ceramic body thus creating the one of a kind SETO-HORI cartridge.
