    Top Wing Seiryu arrives at Believe High Fidelity

    We just announced our Distribution of Top wing in North America. For details about the technology and company you can click here

    This baby is a beast. At 12 grams without the headshell it is definitely your garden variety construction. It is made out of Ultra Duralumin vs the Super Duralumin used in the Etsuro Urushi lineup

    Here is a side by side comparison.

    It is a high compliance cartridge so fortunately our Primary Control Reference handles this exceptional well. It is a shame I can't test out the headshell just yet, but I do have some other plans for using that soon.

    Packaging is top notch and showcases the goods like a piece of jewelry. Every cart is serial on the side to prevent the epidemic of carts being sold out of Japan unauthorized (ahem Koetsu).

    Should be ready for public demo in a week or two and will add my commentary of its sonic performance to this thread at that time.

    Right now they are in another league that what I am used to and I have heard 90% of whats out there. I am counting my lucky stars we were able to acquire the distribution rights. The director is flying in to Axpona so we can drink sake until 4am

    Pricing for the Seiryu is 12.5k and comes with the headshell as shown.

    Hi Joshua, will this be your primary cart or the etsuro? Reason I ask is because I heard the etsuro (no compares) and was very impressed
    Audition recordings: Zero Distortion Link; Reference Components: Zero Distortion Link; Own: Lampi GG One-day-to-get: Apogee Scintilla, or a horn (with Tenor 75 OTL ), Preamp to be fit in to suit the gain and drive the power amp. Analog: TBD

    My agent is likely to become their distributor. I will get to try both Blue and Red. I think the Red is only available for export this month. The Red is more expensive I was told, lighter and doesn’t come with a headshell.

    Kind regards,
    Tang

    Oh now this is the Matrix all over again. Do you take the red pill and go into wonderland or take the blue pill and stay safe....?

    I am getting both but the Suzaku (red) is not RTS until end of Feb early march. So both of Seiryu and Suzaku adopt the coreless-straight flux
    power generation system. How they handle resonance is where the story changes. The system has high compliance but Seiryu's body is heavy and the ultra duralumin has a unique vibration. These means that Seiryu requires special design tonearms like our Primary Control or SAT if you want a more known brand. General high compliance tonearms are a mismatch with Seiryu. Suzaku is more forgiving in choice of arms and lighter, but still high compliance. The unique composition of materials in its design is what drives the price higher and not meant to be a much superior cartridge, but its aspects definitely do improve the sound.

    If you had to get one I would hold out for the Suzaku, but based on my listening so far I don't imagine you will go wrong with either given the core technology is in both. My remarks from the manufactures is the Seiryu is fresher and lighter up in the high FR and the Suzaku is more natural and very luxurious in the mids. As far as I am concerned with my initial testing which I still want to wait before posting the ultimate results is that I couldn't sign our agreement fast enough with about 20 hours on the Seiryu. It is going to be a hot seller that is for sure.
