Jasmine's MC cartridge, the B&W Porcelain series, is the company's high-end series. I purchased the Byakko, which uses a sapphire cantilever and a Shivata stylus. There are four models in this series, the Blue Dragon, White Tiger, Suzaku, and Genbu, which are named after the four gods. The Blue Dragon has a Boron cantilever, the White Tiger has a sapphire cantilever, the Suzaku has an aluminum cantilever, and the Genbu has an aluminum pipe cantilever. The body is a settee with a bare vibrating system inside. As you can guess from the shape, the Porcelain series was designed with a great deal of care and aggression, and the sound is also very impressive. *Excerpt from Mr. Nagai's Facebook page at Bakoon Products
When listening to the combination of Bakoon's turntable and dynamic balun stone arm, the sound is very precise and tight. The sound is not the soft sound of the general image of analog, but rather a distorted sound if not adjusted properly. When customers come to listen to this sound, they all say that it has changed the way they think about analog records. This cartridge is that powerful, but it requires an appropriate arm and turntable, as well as precise tuning to demonstrate its true value.*Mr. Nagai, Bakoon Products
