Stereophile : Recommended components
Stereonet: All of that critical work is beautifully housed in a body of Cameroonian Ebony, known for its exceptional tonal and acoustic properties. Read full review HERE.
Saboten L is created by carefully selecting a large, big beautiful cactus spine.
The tip of the cactus cantilever ties a short aluminum cantilever, 0.6 millimeters diameter then attaches a pure diamond needle creating a the line contact.
It is a clear sound and expresses a delicate sound.
It does not give a useless sound.
It is hard to handle Saboten L for low compliance very much.
I thought about a plan change first, but decided to just make it.
I thought it to be the nearest from an original sound.
I feel the good tone of the musical instrument and feel clear distance between a sound and sounds.
A start and force and the low tone speed are the best.
It is hard to handle this cartridge most in Miyajima-lab, but I want to certainly recommend it to a user possessing a large audio system.
You can enjoy real music by Saboten L.
The Cameroonian ebony body is hard and is heavy.
A black body has some white spots.
It is hard to look with a photograph, but is a beautiful spot.
