SUPEX. from 1959.

Eiji Kanda was a legendary craftsman of audio transformers and MC Cartridges who had spent his career designing products for many well-known brands. He worked within the audio industry for many years and was highly respected, especially in the field of analog replay. Known for being a humble gentleman, he preferred to focus on his technical skills and stay out of the limelight. However, in 2012, he officially established the MUTECH brand. He is known as the inventor of the yoke-less ring-magnet MC cartridge design which dates back to an idea that he conceived in the mid-1970s after a conversation with Mr. Kanda (original founder of MUTECH) and Mr. Asakura (founder of SUPEX).
