SETO-HORI REMODEL Moving Coil Cartridge | First Look & Listen

JICO recently released the Seto-Hori Remodel— a cartridge in a plug-in headshell that’s easily the most beautifully presented cartridge you’ve ever seen. Here you’ll get to both see and hear it in the new Technics SL-1200GR2 turntable. To fully appreciate all of this, please read the exclusive full review of the SL-1200GR2 on the Trackingangle.com website!

The Seto-Hori Remodel is a 2mV output high output moving coil cartridge integrated into an aluminum/copper alloy CNC machined headshell that allows for overhang adjustment. In this video you’ll see and hear it, so watch!

From Fremer: At a hotel adjacent to company headquarters, Bill Voss, Technics’ American Business Development Manager, introduced the new $2199 “next gen” SL1200GR turntable featuring a revolutionary new Delta Sigma drive control technique said to produce smooth, accurate rotational stability and a new power supply similar to the one used in the top of the line SL-1000R, said to produce an exceptionally low noise floor. .

Based on the informal listening session featuring a complete Technics system it was clear that the new ‘table is noticeably quiet and fitted with an Ortofon 2M Black, produced a smooth, pleasing, “musical” sound.

The system consisted of the SU-G700M2-S Digital Integrated Amplifier+ buiilt-in MM/MC phono preamp, SBG90M2 Floorstanding Loudspeakers. Despite no room treatment in the hotel room the sound was rich, warm, and pleasingly detailed reproducing a 1980 Technics-produced record featuring the LA4.
