ZYX ARTisan phono stage made by hisayoshi nakatsuka san of ZYX, CO. nakatsuka san asked SORAsound to be the first ZYX distributor to market his phono stage. ZYX ARTisan design is simple, yet clever – both inside and outside. it has inputs for both moving coil (MC) and moving magnet (MM) cartridges. you will not need to use the ZYX CPP-1 pre-preamp with ZYX ARTisan.
ZYX headshell, called LIVE 18 was born. this was a project that nakatuska san had started while ago and picked up again due to mehran’s encouragement. result is a beautiful headhell that comes in silver and black. it is sure to improve the sound of a tonearm and your cartridge.
mehran commissioned hisayoshi nakatsuka san of ZYX to make his best cartridge ever without any compromises, naming it after our son, SORA. the result was astounding….it was the best cartridge i have ever heard. UNIverse was born.
ZYX airy 3 was born. now, for audiophile vinyl playback joy, we have a high-end moving coil phono cartridge from ZYX corporation. it comes in copper and silver coils, in low and high output versions. omedetto.
SORAsound is happy to announce that we now have a ZYX pre-preamp, called ZYX CPP-1 (don’t ask me why we have all these engineering names). customers kept on asking for the famous and out of production ZYX step ups. well, nakatsuka san, came up with something better. these units are very japanese, very simple. this of course make them beautiful. as for the sound, you know how much i love ZYX.
