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.
a surprise request from hisayoshi nakatsuka san of ZYX. after lots and lots of purchases as an end consumer, a few consulting gigs for manufacturers, and a sheer coincidence…..nakatsuka san asked mehran to become the north american distributor for ZYX cartridges. initially mehran rejected the offer as he did not like the traditional model of audio business, did not like shows (avoided vegas at all costs), and frankly did not think he would be successful.
after some talks, and given mehran’s good friendship with hisayoshi nakatsuka san, mehran decided to partner with ZYX and sibatech. this turned out to be a great journey for us as we have met a lot of nice people because of the joy of music ZYX phono cartridges bring to all of us. soon after, SORAsound, LLC was born.
