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.

Jico Neo SAS for Technics Epc-202C

I already have the original SAS for the 202 end sounds good, but the Neo sounds much better. The lows seem to extend further and with better definition, the mids are warmer but again have better definition and the highs are clearer and more accurate. I can now hear the resonance of the sound box as well as the strings on Stringed instruments, saxes sound fat and warm, cymbals sound real not hiss and bright. The Neo really suits my system. I was worried the Neo would be brighter than the original, but it sounds more real, like the music is being played in the room not coming out of a stereo.

Very satisfied

Easy to install, sounds great!
