What is a N.S. cartridge?

So while we use N.O.S. for New Old Style, we use N.S. for “New Style”.

In our case it means that we use for our new 2013 designed cartridges 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 and we use a new body. Actually we should say another -short size- body. We have chosen for a shorter body as that is easier to use with the arms currently on the market. The shape of the body is based on a design as already used by us in 19?? It 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.

N.S. cartridges will stay in production as long as there is a demand for.

Kiseki Purple Heart N.S. Phono Cartridge Review

Upscale Audio High Fidelity

This is the very limited, highly desirable moving coil cartridge from Japan that the founder of VPI Industries uses on his own turntable.

"I use the Kiseki Purple Heart N.S. in my personal system and have no urge to change cartridges. It sweeps you out of your seat and into the concert hall with power, grace, and air. I cannot recommend a cartridge higher than to say, 'I use it when I just want to enjoy music'." --Harry Weisfeld, founder, VPI Industries

Kiseki

Kiseki. Japanese for “Miracle”. The most mysterious, cherished, and desired name in phono cartridges. Stories have whirled around for decades why they have a sound that nobody else can attain. If you look at the history, you hear stories about such legendary names as Sugano Yoshiaki (Koetsu), Mr. Kondo (Audio Note), and the mysterious Goro Fokadu. Why is it that Kiseki diamonds are different? Is it true that the final polish is carried out using a human hair? Just how do they achieve a wider channel and the huge sense of space that everybody talks about?

We’ll leave you to go out and find these answers. The driving force that made Kiseki the cartridge used in the reference systems of audio’s most astute reviewers is Herman van den Dungen, owner of Durob Audio BV in The Netherlands. Kiseki was born out of two problems that plague the cartridge industry. One is supply, and sadly that will never be a perfect situation as producing a good product is time consuming. The bigger problem is sample to sample variation. Herman has brought to market some of the most notable brands in high end audio. If you know the Dutch people, they require an even higher level of precision than even the Germans or the Swiss. Herman felt that he could achieve a higher level of quality both in manufacturing and in sound, and control distribution so that if a dealer represents he sells Kiseki, the customer won’t wait six months for a cartridge. Not every dealer will be allowed to sell Kiseki.

It’s a specialty item. But worth seeking out.
