JICO SETO-HORI MC CERAMIC PHONO CARTRIDGE

The SETO-HORI MC ceramic cartridge is hand-crafted in Japan with artful expertise to achieve optimized fidelity. 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.

Great service

Quick efficient service

Perfect match for Shure

Back in business and it sounds so good 😎

Excellent All-Round

A great company to deal with. Very prompt with communication, and an excellent product that is not easy to find!

Well made high quality stylus.

Stylus packaging is attractive, sturdy and functional and included a detailed spec/instruction sheet.

The stylus fit the cartridge perfectly and displayed excellent craftsmanship.

Little or no break in time was required and sounded excellent right out of the box. It’s response sounds accurate and flat with strong natural lows and crisp non-sibilant highs. Detail and separation is excellent. It tracks well at recommended force of 1.25 grams.

I am very pleased with this stylus and recommended it for V15 Type IV MR users.
