The very best hand-crafted MC cartridges from a Japanese artisan

PLATANUS is a Tokyo based company created by young Japanese phono cartridge designer Tetsuya Sukehiro. His belief is to focus completely on the design and manufacture of cartridges which are "being faithful to the music itself" 

Towards the realisation of High Fidelity in the true sense

PLATANUS brings Sukehiro-sans passion for music to HiFi. Instead of simply reproducing the energy contained in the record as sound 'information', he is creating exquisite products one by one with his own hands that bring out the information as reproduction of live music with a realistic texture.
