Koetsu cartridges – what happened to them?

November 2018. It is with great regret that after almost 30 years’ we have decided to cease distribution of Koetsu in Australia.

The total lack of support from Koetsu in dealing with the endless Fakes, Forgeries and Fishy Deals made it a non-viable product.

We can also say that the Dynavector DV-XX2 mkII outperforms all but the very top Koetsu cartridges – at a fraction of even the fake-product-pricing – and then there is the world’s best ever cartridge the DRT XV-1 series.  They are in a world of their own.    No fakery, no tricks, no cheap OEM internals in a fancy body, just genuine, real products from the world’s best cartridge manufacturer.
