The Kiseki PurpleHeart N.S. is a true beauty in every sense. Physically, it is made of rare Purpleheart wood, which turns from brown to a golden purple in direct or indirect sunlight. It sports a boron cantilever the size of a human hair. Though 30mm long, it weighs only 7 grams. Its edges are all right angles which make for easy setup. In addition, its strong .48mV output is a chip shot for all MC step-up devices that exist in the world.
“. . . the Purpleheart N.S. produced a rich, inviting harmonic structure right out of the box . . . Broken in and tracking at 2.5gm, the Purpleheart tracked most everything I threw at it.” - Michael Fremer, Stereophile.
